Hungary For A Team Gold

Hungary For A Team Gold

In tomorrow’s 5 km team pursuit event, Hungary came up with an interesting team strategy. While every other team has selected two men and one woman to represent their country, Team Hungary went with two fast women and one man.

Since the team event is based on the time of the last swimmer, it really only matters how fast and how well the last swimmer can draft.

But Hungary’s choice of Olympic champion Éva Risztov and up-and-coming Anna Olasz to team up with Mark Papp is an unusual selection. It will be interesting to see how the strategy works and how the team fares in Barcelona tomorrow.
