In Viganj, on the south-western part of the Peljesac peninsula, the Hungarian windsurfing team is preparing for the Olympic Games in Tokyo. Fifteen members of the Hungarian national team are currently preparing for their Easter preparations, and the two of them will compete at the upcoming Olympic Games in Tokyo, reports the Orebic Tourist Board.
The national team member, Sara Cholnoky, first visited Viganj as a girl fifteen years ago, and head coach, Lorand Utassy, has been coming to Viganj since the 1980s. As they say the choice of Viganj for the preparations was simple, it is relatively close and given the geographical position it is certain that there will be wind. Despite the pandemic, they feel safe, there are no big crowds at the moment, so, they say, they can concentrate exclusively on preparations.
The Hungarian national team was also visited by a representative of the Tourist Board of the Municipality of Orebić, who wished them luck at the Olympics and presented them all with special products from the Pelješac region.
Although Viganj has only around three hundred inhabitants, it has long been known as a place for fans of adrenaline sports.
