After 12 years of waiting, Slovakia will take part at this year’s Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in synchronised swimming, thanks to Jana Labáthová and Nada Daabousová, two representatives of Slovakia in this discipline. The trainees of Nora and Gábor Szauder are preparing for this world-class event in x-bionic® aquatic sphere. Even though they have a busy program, they managed to give us a brief interview.
