The Hungarians, world champions in 2013 and 2015, were defeated by the Germans on Monday, but on Tuesday morning they defeated the South Korean duo, and at noon they met with the Canadian national team. The outside duo started the match better, but the 2-0 advantage gained in the first stage was replaced by a reflex in the second stage. Canada again took the lead on the jump, leading 5-2 after the second leg. From here, the Hungarian unit, which had suffered a 7-5 defeat, could no longer catch up.
In the battle, the fights take place in two groups of ten, with the former immediately reaching the semi-finals, the second and third place winners intersecting to reach the four, while the fourth spouses fight over the final quota. If necessary.
The youngsters’ goal is to start the sport’s first five episodes for Hungary, which they have to finish in the best week. Eighth place is only sufficient to qualify if the host country of the Beijing Winter Games, confirmed emerging China, takes first place in the top eight.
