CLUB SWITCH
In November 2018 he made the switch from his first swimming club Erdi Uszo Klubnak to join Budapest Honved. "Although I was a swimmer of Erdi since I was six, and I think back to the 12 years I spent there, I felt there were no more conditions for me to go further to achieve higher goals. Erdi was a very small association, and I wanted to open a new, clean card in my career." (index.hu, 05 Dec 2018; m4sport.hu, 25 Nov 2018; magyaridok.hu, 07 Nov 2018)
