Yeah absolutely. And there are young swimmers as well so there is a future.

But it is true that Katinka and Laszlo will be hard to replace. This will be Laszlo’s last Olimpics.
Katinka said that there is one more in her… but she is also not young.

Crazy that our government spend a lot more on football (where we are quite week) and not to swimming…
