Hungary denies Spain its last medal

Viktor Nagy's great-great-grandfather was a recognized painter, one of Hungary's most important, does nothing sold one of his paintings for more than one million euros. Nagy is, therefore, a member of a well well. And that's why he could have been dedicated to living life, art, to administer the money of him or even a pleasant sport, like that of his brother of him little of him Daniel, who competes in the World Cup. But no. Viktor Nagy chose the waterpolo and, in the water polo, he chose to be a goalkeeper, a strange decision that already showed that he was a special guy: this Sunday discovered him Spain (9-5).

Nagy was the culprit of the defeat of the team in the fight for the bronze of the Tokyo Games. The performance of him was an anthological with eight stops in 13 pitches, most of them in the second half of the match. After Alberto Munarriz established the 5-5 and that both teams went to the break, Nagy denied any Spanish option to climb the podium. Not a goal in the last two rooms, in 20 minutes, a team in depression. They all tried, of course they tried it, and everyone met the goalkeeper: Munarriz himself, Álvaro Granados, Bernat Sanhuja, Felipe Perrone ...

At the end of the game, in fact, there was no drama or even tears on a Spanish team still in 'shock' so it had happened. He could have fallen with a goal in the last second as the Serbian Filip Filipovic in semifinals, but the players never imagined that they suddenly stopped competing. In the third quarter, the Nagy stops still did not take the despair (6-5), but when the minutes passed and the blockade became unwavering the spirits fell into chopped.

A goal by Daniel Angyal is lacking almost three minutes (8-5) was the sentence and it was only launched to the desperate against Nagy's goal, with everything, even leaving Empty itself. There was no way. The outdoor of the painter, a special guy, left the selection without the bronze he deserved during the tournament. Despite this, this generation, full of young people, who had three consecutive finals in the last three tournaments, has rope to get with options to the podium to the Games of Paris 2024.
