My name is Gergely Gyurta and I was born on 12 Sept 1991.
I followed and keep going on my brother’s way, that’s why nobody should admire on the partial similarities to his descriptions.
My relation to swimming was mainly influenced by my brother’s advanced swimming practice. So did I take my first steps under Gabriella Párkányi ’s coaching, and my enthusiasm led much quicker to Katalin Perjamosi.
I was also involved in the changing of Club, but I was pretty young ( 7 year old ) when I arrived in Béla Komjádi swimming pool. Széles was working with 10 and 13 year old kids, so I was directed to the youngers in Balázs Fehérvári group. Around this period, I managed to swim my first national record in 1500m freestyle.
From 2002, I have been cooperating with Sándor Széles, so have with Ferenc Kovácshegyi and Balázs Virth. This year (2010 ) I became the member of adult national team, and accordingly I could participate on European Championship in Budapest, where I was able - both in 1500m and 800m freestyle - to reach the final.
I began my studies in Géza Bárczy Primary School, then in Péter Veres Secondory School was the next successful school - time.
Now, I am attending on the Department of Economy and Manegement of Budapest Communication College
