FIRST EVER HUNGARIAN GOLD AT THE 2018 OLYMPIC WINTER GAMES

The short trackspeed skating number at the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games ended today. The Hungarian team excelled at the men’s 500 metres number, but they astonished us even more at the closing round: the last challenge was the men’s 5000 metres, where the Hungarian team placed first, reports online daily 24.hu. The Hungarian team consisted of Liu Shaolin, Liu Shaoang, Viktor Knoch and Csaba Burján. At first, they tried to get ahead of the competitors, but the Olympic recorder South-Korean team took over the lead. The South-Koreans were eventuallydethroned’ by the Chinese team. At half-way through, the Hungarian team was third, while the South-Korean team dropped out, thus giving a boost to the Hungarians. Throughout the last 8 rounds, the Hungarian team was second, the Chinese remaining in their leading positions. At the third round before the finish line, the Hungarian team performed a spectacular trick, helping Sándor Lio Shaolin cross the line as first in Hungarian colours, securing the gold. This is Hungary’s first gold at the Olympic Winter Games. China placed second, Canada third and South-Korea fourth. Hungary’s last medal at the Olympic Winter Games was won in 1980 at Lake Placid by the ice dance duo of Krisztina Regőczy and András Sallay. Hungary has won so far one gold, two silver and four bronze medals. At this year’s Winter Games, the short track speed skaters were the most successful: the women’s team placed fourth, Sándor Liu Shaolin placed fifth both on 500 metres and 1500 metres, while Petra Jászapáti placed sixth on 1500 metres.

FIGURE SKATING AND AC/DC

Ivett Tóth sure knows how to stand out in a crowded field of female figure skaters for the 2018 Winter Olympics. Her solution: bring out the AC/DC.During the women’s figure skating short programs on Tuesday night in PyeongChang, Hungary’s Tóth surprised crowds — both at the rink and around the world — with her unorthodox choice of music. And to many, she’s become an instant rock hero.Tóth may be just 19, but there’s no doubt her clear love for the classic rock band transcends generational taste. Most figure skaters have been sticking to more traditional soundtracks: the scores of Tchaikovsky classic Swan Lake and Bizet’s Carmen could be heard throughout Tuesday night at the Gangneung Ice Arena.Former champion Evgenia Medvedeva went a little more abstract, selecting a Chopin nocturne and incorporating the sound of her own breathing and a few words. But it was Tóth who raised eyebrows — and grabbed attention — with the “Back in Black” and “Thunderstruck” medley. She topped that off by coming costumed in a studded leather pant-and-vest combo with fingerless gloves, a far cry from her competitors’ delicate skirts and balletic tutus. Naturally, the internet was agog with her bold performance. And although Tóth finished after the short program with 53.22 points, well behind the top-ranked Olympic athletes from Russia, she won’t soon be forgotten — even if she doesn't make it to the medal podium.
