PM Orbán Discusses Budapest Hosting 2020 Aquatics Championships
Prime Minister Viktor Orbán met Paolo Barelli, the head of the European swimming league LEN, to discuss the preparations for two European aquatics championships Budapest will host in 2020, the organisation’s newsletter said.

Orbán and Barelli talked about the water polo championships to be held in January and the European championship for swimming, synchronised swimming and diving in May.

They also touched on further events Hungary might host, the newsletter said. “Hungary is lucky to have a leader so committed to sports as Viktor Orbán,” LEN’s statement cited Barelli as saying.
