Accidents in professional sports - proper insurance with OVB
Norbert Dudás is a former professional athlete who participated in several world championships as a member of the team of the Hungarian Gymnastics Federation. His greatest success was winning a bronze medal at the World Championships. During his career he has experienced first-hand how important proper insurance against possible sports injuries can be.
Great sport, high risk of injury
Gymnastics is a demanding sport that requires hard training and comes with a high risk of injury. If a professional athlete is injured, he cannot participate in training and competitions for the time being. His income also vanishes correspondingly. This makes it all the more important to protect yourself against such situations. Norbert speaks from experience. He suffered a bad injury to his knee during an international competition. "I took part in a competition in Germany when I landed a jump badly," Norbert tells us. Fortunately, his gymnastics federation already had a partnership with OVB at that time.
Responsibility towards athletes
The protection of athletes is also the responsibility of their trainers or managers. The idea of finding a reliable financial partner to support young athletes came from Zoltán Magyar, the director of the Hungarian Gymnastics Federation. Zoltán, himself a two-time Olympic champion, is responsible for local competitions in all disciplines of the federation. "The life of a professional athlete is very exciting and varied, but also risky. That's why we were looking for insurance that would provide security for our athletes in case of injury," explains Zoltán. He is extremely satisfied with the service provided by OVB. All athletes who have been injured so far have received optimal care. "We always get all the necessary information from OVB and receive excellent advice. They have the best experts for the areas of finance and insurance - all of the professionals", Zoltán adds.
