A lot of people ask me if I race as Hungarian or Canadian at international events. Most of the time these questions come from national associations or the media. I would like to address the issue because it is an important one for me. The short answer is: in triathlon I race as Hungarian; in running I race as Canadian. This came about coincidentally but once I realized this is how things naturally worked out, I embraced it and decided to keep it this way. I feel it truly represents who I am and that I look at both countries...

This was quite an experience! Where to start... As we all know, 2020 is a different year. My race calendar was wiped out as I'm guessing most of yours was too. Virtual races just don't appeal to me, so my solution to keep myself motivated was to find races that were on my bucket list and actually went ahead live.

„You know what would be a LOT of fun? To do that IM distance race in Hungary” - I wrote to my coach, responding to his comments saying I should be doing things that I find fun now that my whole season was wiped out, including my planned A-race of the ITU Long-Course Worlds in Amsterdam, Holland. He was referring to our local unofficial TT races that I had fun participating in. There was no response to my email - just pure silence. I don't blame him, he was probably thinking „you must be kidding me” - the race was less...

The question I get the most both from customers of HoldTheCarbs and my friends is about weight loss. They usually ask how I did it, how I keep the weight off and how it is possible to train at a high level and lose weight at the same time.
