PHOENIX, Arizona, January 24. KATINKA Hosszu is ready to leap off the page as the cover athlete for February's Swimming World Magazine! To capture the perfect shot, the Hungarian Olympian and overall female winner of the 2012 FINA World Cup Series was the centerpiece of an awesome photo shoot in Hungary. The shoot provided a number of interesting pictures for the cover of February's Swimming World Magazine.
Hosszu told Swimming World Magazine that holding all of her medals from the 2012 FINA World Cup circuit "...was like a workout." The film and photography crew experimented with different ways to arrange and present Hosszu's medals and $100k FINA check. Frankly, it looks like Hosszu had full day of fun. From hair and makeup, to leaping into the air with her check, or tossing stuffed World Cup mascots at the camera, we wish we were there to experience it first-hand!
After the shoot, Hosszu's agent, Shane Tusup, sent Swimming World the following "Behind the Scenes" video. It shows all the pieces that go into getting the perfect cover shot.
