Hungary fourth in European swimming

Katinka Hosszú won four gold medals at the European Short Course Swimming Championships that concluded in Glasgow on Sunday.

The “Iron Lady” of swimming took gold in the 200-metre butterfly race, and swept the 100-, 200- and 400-metre individual medley events.

Hungary finished fourth overall in the medals table, as, alongside Hosszú’s haul, Zsuzsanna Jakabos and Ajna Késely each won a silver and a bronze medal.

There was also a silver for Szebastián Szabó and a bronze for Maxim Lobanovskij.
