On October 25, 2017, representatives of the Hungarian Commercial and Cultural Center (HTCC) and the International Chamber of Commerce of Florida (FICOC) gathered at the Városligeti Café to celebrate the second World Championship title of the Hungarian Rowing Hall, which was held on 29 September 2017 the Hungarian unity was conquered. The event was attended by the world champion Béla Simon - Adrián Juhász, Vanda Kolláth, and Dr. SzabolcsTamásBényi, president of the Hungarian Rowing Federation.
Success was largely contributed to HTCC's recent sponsorship behind athletes and their participation in the Rowing World Cup at Sarasota-Bradenton. FICOC has also played an important role in HTCC's affiliate in Florida as they have provided on-site balanced preparation for competitors and more efficient regeneration between competitions. The athletes sought HTCC a few weeks before the world championships, the successful cooperation with the outstanding speed and the athletes' steady work was already in the hands of the event participants, as the contestants brought their gold coins with them.
The event was attended by Sándor Balogh, president of the HTCC, who said that it was a great honor for HTCC to be behind such great sportsmen as supporters. The organization has also emerged as a sponsor of several sports events over the past time, as it seeks to reflect on its name, it is an important recognition that there are fewer tools available for culture and sports to strengthen relationships. Peter Harris, president of the FICOC, said it was a great honor for the International Chamber of Commerce in Florida to cooperate with HTCC and help the Hungarian team in this extremely important race. Thus, the conditions were optimal and provided everything to give our athletes the best performance. He also said that, apart from being outstanding sportsmen, there was a very good friendship between them during the World Cup, which they would continue to cultivate.
At the event, the biggest event of all was the decisive race, which was won by a surrealistic defeat of the Hungarian unity targeting the Australians. In addition, during the festive dinner, photos of the event were screened, during which participants shared their personal stories and impressions.
Both HTCC and FICOC are proud of being part of this unusual victory and we hope that future cooperation will also provide a great deal of success for both organizations.
