Head-coach László Kiss stepped out of the plane on to the tarmac first, and immediately evaluated the performance of the team to journalists.

The short Course European Championships in Herning was a kind of crowning this year, which shows what an amazing force Hungarian swimmers represent internationally said the head-coach.

"The Short Course European Championships besides the fantastic performances by Katinka Hosszú, Dániel Gyurta, Gergely Gyurta, Dávid Verrasztó, Dominik Kozma and Péter Bernek was also an important milestone in the history of Hungarian swimming sport because our country finished second on the medal table behind Russia said Kiss.
