We congratulate all the sportsmen and sportswomen who represent their respective countries at the Olympics. We are proud to observe several Hungarian and Hungarian-American successes.
The men's 200-meter individual medley included three of the greatest individual medley swimmers in the world, each of whom won medals in the event at the 2008 Olympic Games. Two of those swimmers, Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte are American while László Cseh is Hungarian. The three of them shared the podium. Congratulation!
The extraordinary group of women’s eight rowing teamed up to beat the world again, rowing the United States to a second straight Olympic gold medal at Dorney Lake in Windsor in the women’s eight competition. Susan (Zsuzsanna) Francia, the Hungarian-born Penn grad was part of the team. As she put it, “That is an American dynasty, baby. There is a lot of power in that boat.” Congratulation!
