World champion and Rio Olympic silver medalist Laszlo Cseh (HUN) confirmed his attendance to the 2017 Euro Meet to be held at the D’Coque swimming pool in Luxembourg City from 27th to 29th January.

Laszlo Cseh, who celebrates his 31st birthday today, stood together with Michael Phelps and Chad Le Clos on the silver medal stand at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games behind gold medal winner Joseph Schooling of Singapore.

With this historic finish, the men’s 100 m butterfly race was one of the most memorable events in Rio with three men touching in 51,14 tie for second place.

Laszlo Cseh won 72 international medals so far at major events (Olympic Games, World Championships long and short course, European Championships long and short course) in the timeframe 2003 – 2016.

Asked if he would retire after the Games like Phelps, Cseh, said that he wanted to swim in his hometown Budapest in the brand new swimming complex currently built for the 2017 World Swimming Championships. No doubt that the Euro Meet will once again be a solid start for the upcoming season, and that Cseh will perform July next in front of his home crowd.

Cseh reflected in an interview about his career stands and where it may lead. He took some time off after this year’s Olympic Games and he wont’t compete at the  the short course World Championships set for Windsor next week.

Cseh wants to ride a ‘strong tailwind of Hungarian fan encouragement’ when in Budapest next year. First things first, however, as Cseh says, “For now, the most important thing is to be physically and mentally refreshed to continue training.”

The Euro Meet takes place in the beautiful aquatic centre “d’Coque” at Luxembourg-Kirchberg. The facility has a 50 m, 10-lane competition pool and also a 50 m training pool as well as a 25 m warm-up pool. Luxembourg is a small country in western Europe, it is bordered by Belgium, Germany and France and it is one of the smallest sovereign states in Europe. Nonetheless the city of Luxembourg, which is the country’s capital, is the seat of several institutions and agencies of the European Nation and Luxembourg is the largest private banking centre in the eurozone.
