Lambda-Com supports Hungarian para-canoeist champion by donating a canoe

Lambda-Com Ltd. donated a racing canoe constructed by individual demand to Sándor Szabó para-canoeist world champion. On 11 October the sportsman who has been active and successful for years, ceremoniously received his new boat whit which he hopes to participate successfully on domestic and international races for the next years.

Although Hungarian kayak-canoe clubs only have dealt with disabled sportsmen for just a few years, the country already can take pride in great success. Last year Hungarian sportsmen performed with an outstanding efficiency at the World Championship held in Szeged. Sándor Szabó gained the world championship title in category V-1 TA on 200 meters run by a Hódy boat. Since then he has been the most successful of this sport and also performed effectively in different competitions.

Lambda-Com Ltd. is a fully Hungarian-owned multinational company that provides complex transport informatics services in 14 European countries. Commitment to sport plays an important role in everyday life of company’s employees. Building on these values, Lambda-Com Ltd. met Hódy Sport Ltd. which is a nationally and internationally recognized racing boat building company.

‘In the course of the cooperation of these two companies we are permanently endeavor to contribute to the development of this sport besides producing professional sport equipments. That is our main purpose of supporting the talents of kayak-canoe and paracanoe. This summer the three best kayakers of the age group of 14 years have gotten WebEye Challenge Boats for a one year period as support of preparing. Now, on 11 October Sándor Szabó could receive a paracanoe constructed by individual demand and current regulations of the category’ – said Anikó Bernáth communication leader.

Sándor Szabó para-canoist world champion said: ‘For me it is a great leap forward to own a boat, since it is much more easier to prepare for the next the races. The association used to lend me boats but this is a complicated process of consultations. I train every day to keep fit and this way, with my own bout always available and used by only me, it is more simple. My aim is to participate on the Rio 2016 Paralympic Games where the paracanoe will be included for the first time.’
