Katinka Hosszu Is Relentless... Luxembourg Euro Meet Is Up Next

Post race conversation: Jakabos and Hosszu planning their next competition together.

Katinka Hosszu is starting 2013 as she started, finished (and everything in between) 2012... by racing. This time around it is in the long course Luxembourg Euro Meet which runs from Jan 18-20. Just as she did in three weeks ago in La Reunion, Hosszu has entered every event on the women's programme. That's 16 events in 3 days.

Also competing is her ever present compatriot Zsuzsanna Jakabos as well as Olympic champion Ruta Meilutyte and her Plymouth Leander team mates. A number of German internationals (Yannick Lebherz, Hendrik Feldwehr, Christian vom Lehn, Marco Koch, Dorothea Brandt) as well as Ukraine's Daryna Zevina will also be racing this Friday to Sunday.

  1. Unbelievable! She just don`t stop. I`m starting to wonder if this continuing competing disturb her training to build good form into World Championships? I believe that in swimming you must have sometimes contiguous training season.

  2. Camera-man slept in! Live streaming was about to start at 8:30 (Luxembourg time) but it didn`t. I just wanted to see how Meilutyte swim in her 50m breast heat. Now streaming is running, it`s at 9:00 local time.

    Anyway, I`m thankful that these streaming services are becoming more common. Only slight improvement in quality and moaners like me cannot find anything to complain about.
