Leading news portal Reuters has a very interesting interview with the coach of Hungarian water polo team. He talks about the team, the gold medals, and the secret of the teams’ power: the Hungarian thermal water!

The current men’s water polo team is now preparing to their fourth Olympic gold medal under the coaching of Dénes Kemény, after they won the last three. Altogether, Hungarian water polo teams won 9 Olympic gold, which is the most in the sport’s history.
