Áron Szilágyi (born 14 January 1990) is a Hungarian sabre fencer.

Szilágyi began fencing at age nine at Vasas SC in Budapest, which remains his club as to 2013.His first coach was György Gerevich, whom he considers as his personal hero alongside with György’s father, seven-time Olympic champion Aladár Gerevich.[2] Szilágyi made his international debut in 2007 at the 2007 World Fencing Championships in Saint-Petersburg as member of the Hungarian men’s sabre team which earned the gold medal.[2]

He competed in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, finishing 15th in the individual event and 7th in the team event.

Attila Vajda

Attila Vajda (born 17 March 1983) is a Hungarian sprint canoer who has competed since the early 2000s. Competing in three Summer Olympics (04, 08, 12) he has won two medals in the C-1 1000 m event with a gold in 2008 and a bronze in 2004.

Vajda was a European junior champion in 2000, winning the Canadian canoe C-2 1000 m title with Démász-Szeged team-mate Márton Joób inBoulogne, France. In 2002 the pair came second at the European under-23 championships in Zagreb, Croatia in the same event.

Hungarian coach Zoltán Angyal was confident of Vajda’s ability but took the decision not to give him his senior international debut in 2002 or 2003. In 2004, Angyal was still keeping his cards close to his chest. The Hungarian team did not take part in the early season international regattas: at the European Championships Hungary was represented in the C-1 races by Márton Joób and Sándor Malomsoki. Angyal then shocked his rival coaches by selecting Vajda as his “secret weapon” for the 2004 Summer Olympics in the C-1 1000 m event.

In his initial heat with a time of 3:57.290, Vajda qualified for the semifinals. There, he placed second, this time at 3:52.236, advancing to the final round. Vajda won a bronze in the event behind Spain’s David Cal and Germany’s Andreas Dittmer, but beat out 1996 Olympic champion Martin Doktor with a time of 3:49.025.

Hungary is one of the few countries in the world where sprint canoers have the status of stars known to the general public and Vajda suddenly found himself the new “golden boy” of Hungarian canoeing. His performances in 2005 suffered as a result of these distractions; he started the season overweight and failed to make the podium in any major international race.

In 2006 he won the national title over all three distances and, in May, beat a top-class international field at Duisburg. Injury prevented him from appearing at the European championships, but he was determined not to miss the 2006 World Championships, held in his hometown of Szeged. He recovered in time to take the C-1 1000 m bronze medal behind surprise winnerEverardo Cristóbal of Mexico and Germany’s Andreas Dittmer. Vadja won the gold medal in the same event at the following world championships in Duisburg.

At the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, Vajda wore a black armband in dedication to his fallen teammate György Kolonics and dedicated his C-1 1000 m gold in Kolonics’ honor. He would win the Hungarian Sportsman of The Year for his Beijing win.

Vajda won a silver in the C-1 4 x 200 m event at the 2009 championships in Dartmouth. He also won a silver in the C-1 1000 m at the 2010 championships.
