Other information
SWIMMING COUPLE
His partner Boglarka Kapas is also an international swimmer representing Hungary, which he says can both help and strain their relationship. "It matters a lot that we're swimmers, we both have the same day. We talk about the problems and the good things about training. In a good relationship, it must be clear from the first moment that you want to be with the other. We have small quarrels, and that happens to everyone who lives with someone. It's not healthy for a couple to never get away from each other. Most of our discussions come from the fact that when we get home from training, we're both more tired and irritable. With both of us, we have even more influence on each other, we share the same goals." (nemzetisport.hu, 19 Jul 2020; blikk.hu, 09 Mar 2018; blikk.hu, 30 Jul 2021)
