A short description about our presenter:

Viktor Huvos is the coach for the current world champion 200m K2 (2015) and many other Hungarian national paddlers. He started his sport career when he was 10 and could have joined the junior national team when he was 17 years old. However, Viktor decided to stop paddling when he was 20 to focus on his studies and his business. Amazingly, he came back to compete at the age of 26 and won countless national championship titles until 2007 when he started to coach the Hungarian National Team.

Since then, he coached many world champions including our very own Balazs Babella. His team is now one of the most successful kayak team in Hungary with many excellent results from both 200m and 1000m events.
