Katinka Hosszu Thriving With New Coach: GMM presented by SwimOutlet.com

Gold Medal Minute presented by SwimOutlet.com

Olympic and World Champion Katinka Hosszu has only gotten better since coming off of last summer. At the FINA Champions Series in Indy, Hosszu dropped a 2:08.5 200 IM, over 1.5 seconds better than her 2:10.1 she swam to win European Champs. Obviously, she’s in a good place. She loves training in Budapest with her new coach and she’s clearly thriving.  The Iron Lady can nearly swim anything she wants, but she’s focused on the 200 and 400 IM for 2019 FINA World Championships in Korea.


I think Katinka wins 200 IM, her best event of worlds, in 2:06.4.
And, generally speaking, she defends her 2017 title in the 200 and 400 IM.

What do you think?

I wonder where Shane will be in 10 years. Could be a very positive place.


If he learns from the past mistakes or disruptive behaviors , he will be fine .


Unless he’s found some other talent to leech on, I doubt it.


Cant blame him for reacting to his wife cheating on him right?


Hosszu definitely wins both IMs this summer, and most likely in Tokyo as well. I can even see her maintaining her streak all the way to 2024, 1) as woman’s IM is kind of a weak area internationally right now, and 2), there’s no extremely talented u18 in the world right now with impressive international experience/great times in woman’s IM, ie. Milak/Urlando/ikee/smith (and to the same extent kolesnikov/ruck/andrew, but they’re all on the older side) course, 5 years is plenty of time for someone to pop up/Hosszu to really fall of.

Regardless, I think Hosszu wins both IM’s this summer, but no other golds. Don’t think she’ll break 2:07. only other medal will be a minor medal in the 200 back

I don’t Hosszu will medal in the 200 back, it has a very young field loaded with talent. She has a better chance in the 200 fly


I definitely think Hosszú has a much better chance of medaling in the 200 fly, but I thought she wasn’t swimming it at worlds.


she is not swimming it at worlds as mentioned in the interview


I dont think she is swimming the fly. She got 3rd at nationals


O’Connor almost beat her. If she finds her motivation again perhaps it could be a race
