CLUB SWITCH
In November 2018 he made the switch from his first swimming club, Erdi Uszo Klubnak, to join Budapest Honved. "Although I was a swimmer of Erdi since I was six, and I think back to the 12 years I spent there, I felt there were no more conditions for me to go further to achieve higher goals. Erdi was a very small association, and I wanted to open a new, clean card in my career."
