Kayaker Katalin Kovács trains even while pregnant

Tuesday, March 25, 2014

Multiple world and Olympic champion kayaker Katalin Kovács (38) who is expecting her first child in June, trains even during her pregnancy.

But she has changed her training schedule a bit to fit better to her current condition as her belly is growing quickly; she gave up jogging and instead she started spinning exercises.

"I haven't stopped jogging because I didn't enjoy it, but because people told me that at this stage of my pregnancy it was not very beneficial”.

Kovács already counting the days until the delivery of her first child. The 31 time world champion kayaker who is just a few months away from giving birth to her daughter is truly amazed how fast time goes by.

“Finally, I look like a real mother, Luca is growing nicely and she is very active in my tummy,” - smiled the kayaker. “The past six and a half months were a very hectic period in our lives. In the fall, I still followed regular training schedule, then we went on vacation, then came the holidays. After that we traveled again and started rearranging our home to be ready for Luca's birth,” said Kovács.

“I think a lot of the future, how can I shape my life, my plans and my dreams the way I want. But I guess it will be Luca who will decide what to do next,” said the world champion kayaker.
