M4sport.hu reported that the printed version of Forbes Magazine issued in March composed a list about the most valuable sportsperson in Hungary.
According to the list of Forbes Magazine, Katinka Hosszú, the famous Hungarian swimmer who won three golden medals at the Olympic Games, has been the most valuable sportsperson.
The list continues with Áron Szilágyi fencer, who defended his Olympic sabre title in Rio. Forbes.hu believes that his modesty, intelligence and attractive physical characteristics all contribute to his success.
The fencer is followed by Danuta Kozák canoeist, who, similarly to Katinka Hosszú, won three Olympic medals in 2016. The magazine mentions that she was the one earning the most money during the Olympic Games.
László Nagy, the handball player of Veszprém stands at the fourth place, followed by Dániel Gyurta and László Cseh swimmers at the fifth and sixth.
Despite his success at the European Football Championship, Balázs Dzsudzsák has reached only the eighth place.
Tímea Babos, famous Hungarian tennis player stands at the thirteenth place in the list of Forbes Magazine.
Last but not least, Sándor Liu Shaolin is at the twenty-fourth place in the list of twenty-five sportspersons.
The editorial staff scored 60 sportspersons’ performance of the last year in nine different sports. The results of the teams and the clubs did not count (only the results of the best three). The total score was weighted per sports. Latter is determined by two factors: the frequency of organizing world competition for teams in a given sport, and the value a sport is worth based on international figures, m4sport.hu says. This is how they got a list of 36 sportspersons, and then they asked advertising agencies to fix an amount of money they would spent on a sportsperson in a campaign addressing brand recognition. The final, total score was counted based on the opinions of the agencies and the sports results. The score was finally projected to a scale of 100.
