Christoph Milak, who won the World Championship title in 2022 with an impressive world record, then missed the 2023 World Championships, started 2024 with a picture that says a lot. Hacked by 444. More precisely, it was not he, but Adam Schmidt, the state secretary responsible for sports administration, who published about the Olympic champion. Not for long, but more clearly: hello 2024, here we come! Schmidt's wife, three-time Olympic kayak champion Katalin Kovacs, is also pictured.
The swimmer had originally planned to return to action in September after a short break, but after two training sessions, he stepped away from the World Cup in October and extended his break. Then in this article we summarize what's going on around it.
In recent months, a lot of people have been talking about the 23-year-old Milack's career, but he hasn't said anything. Now, she seems to be hinting that she will be in the pool and starting some water exercises with this photo. Because up until now, even though he had been visiting the gym fairly regularly, he had regularly stayed away from Balazs Firth's water workouts.
The friendship between Milak and Schmidt can be traced back a long way, with the swimmer pausing training ahead of the 2022 World Championships in Budapest, then one morning walking into his office and telling him he was ready to work. He received the gold medal from Schmidt in Dona Arena who had been appointed Minister of State and first leader of Hungarian sport a few days earlier.
The competitor's former coach, Attila Celmesi, believes that the start of training next January is the last opportunity to defend his title in the 200 butterfly at the Paris Olympics. Captain Csaba Sós was more skeptical, because in his opinion, this omission is already exaggerated, and it is no coincidence that the competitors have been training for months. It would soon become clear how serious Milak was about his return, because if he was, he wouldn't be able to miss him even once. At the Paris Olympics, Frenchman Leon Marchand is the biggest candidate in the 200-meter butterfly, provided that Milack does not start.
