It is easy to estimate the strength of the field by .using the number of events Hosszu is entering. It is inversely proportional.
Is it that meet’s organizers invite celebrities to raise the public interest to this competition or that is the omnivorous Hosszu facing the decline in performance takes everything that is available. Same as outstanding but aging actress participates in low quality commercials.


She’s generally entering all of the events. It’s not about the field. It’s training. She does it in most of the SC and sometimes the LC Hungarian Nationals, too. And loose 1 or 2 races, e.g against Kapas, or in breaststroke. That’s the case.
