HVG.hu reports that the Hungarian competitors managed to win three gold medals at the 19th FAI World Glider Aerobatic Championship, held at the Matkó Airport in Hungary, alongside the 7th World Advanced Glider Aerobatic Championships.

The 10-day event (July 20-30) was organized by the FAI (Fédération Aéronautique Internationale), the Hungarian Aeronautical Association, and the Hungarian Aerobatic Club, and was held in Hungary at the airport of Matkópuszta.

And as for the results, according to the press service of the non-Olympic sports, the site writes that Ferenc Tóth became the gold winner in the individual Unlimited Category, just ahead of another Hungarian competitor János Szilágyi, who therefore won the silver medal.


Also, the same category’s team version ended with a Hungarian victory, as the aforementioned Tóth and Szilágyi with János Sonkoly made up a team and eventually got to stand on the very top of the podium, between the teams of France and Germany.


Moreover, the Advanced Category too brought successes: individually Dávid Józsa won a silver medal. But he was also part of the team alongside Miklós Hoós and Péter Szabó, which ended up being the owner of the gold medals, followed by Poland and Italy.
