Budapest, November 30 (MTI) – President of the Hungarian Swimming Association, Tamás Gyárfás, resigned on Wednesday.
He said in a statement that he believed his resignation was the best way to help the sport.
Earlier this month, several swimmers including Katinka Hosszú, three-time Rio Olympic champion, and coaches called on Gyárfás to resign and urged reforms in the swimming association.
The office of the state secretary for sports said the state would not interfere but called for an urgent resolution, also taking into consideration that Hungary will host the 2017 World Aquatics Championships, “the largest ever sports event in Hungary”.
