One of the main character of the Hungarian swimming society who won a gold medal in 2012, London at the Olympic games and gained three silver medals in 2003, Barcelona at 10th FINA World Aquatics Championships, retires.

Éva Risztov confirmed the news on her official Facebook site in a live video, that she finished her professional career as a sportswoman.

"Yes, this is my final decision. Now, it is time for me to prove in civil life. I always thought, that you need to use the incoming opportunities. Two years ago, I started to work at the TMC company in the management of sport. Since then, we could build up many things together. We would like to improve in many fields, such as communication, marketing, PR, so we could use it in business.

I would also like to share my stories to all the sportsmen/sportwomen whom I will work with. I ask everybody not to commiserate, but encourage me. Yes, I won in London, but in my civil life I am not a Olympic champion. I still get gratulations because of my golden medal. I would like to reach the point, when i get these gratulations after what I did in real life, in my new profession. I will do my best, and I thank all the help I got. Let's cheer together for the hungarian sport!" - finished Éva Risztov her video.
