Judoka Éva Csernoviczki – a true Hungarian patriot

Saturday, May 11, 2013

Olympic bronze medalist and European Champion judoka Éva Csernoviczki rejected an “irrefusable” offer from Azerbaijan Judo Federation. She was offered three times of her current salary (10,000 EURO a month) if she switches country and competes for Azerbaijan said the President of the Hungarian Judo Federation László Tóth to Bors.

In addition, she was offered $ 1 million premium for an Olympic gold medal in the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Summer Olympics.

Both Éva and her father-coach rejected the offer. In the mean time, the president of the Hungarian Judo Federation politely asked Azeri sport officials to leave the athlete and her coach alone and don't bombard them with offers.
