The Iron Lady is back
The organizers of the Euro Meet can announce the first highlight in the 2019 line up - Katinka Hosszu will compete at the 21st Euro Meet.
After a break 2018 the Hungarian top swimmer known as Iron Lady has decided to start her preparation for the World Championship in Luxembourg. Katinka is well known to the Luxembourg swimming family: at Euro Meet 2013 she dared an experiment and swam over all 15 individual distances into the final and could win eleven of them. During this time, the 29-year-old coined her nickname "Iron Lady".
Meanwhile, the level of the Euro Meet is so high among women that she probably wouldn't be able to do such a coup anymore. For the 21st edition at the end of January 2019, the Hungarian will probably concentrate on her main events. After all, she is Olympic champion over 100m back, 200 and 400m medley and reigning world champion (200, 400 medley). With the second place in the overall World Cup ranking, Katinka was already in top form again this season. Only the Swedish sprint queen Sarah Sjöstöm had to bow to the Iron Lady - but who knows, maybe the two will meet in the competition pool of the Coque...
