Katinka Hosszu tears up contract with federation, plans to train solo


After failing to reach an agreement with the Hungarian Swimming Federation, Hungarian competitive swimmer Katinka Hosszú today tore up her contract with the federation and announced at a press conference that she would train privately on her own, according to reports.

The contract Hosszú tore apart today valued at approximately HUF 12 million, was offered to her for promoting the 2017 World Aquatics Championships in Budapest, the swimmer claims. She reportedly said she does not need the money, and that the federation should keep it and use it to establish “appropriate conditions” for Hungarian swimmers.
