Zsuzsanna Jakabos Signs With Energy Standard


Energy Standard has picked up another new swimmer for its season two roster in the International Swimming League (ISL), announcing the signing of Zsuzsanna Jakabos.

“Our next swimmer is new to our team this year but will be a great addition with her versatility in many events. Hungarian @zsuzsubell !,” Energy Standard’s Instagram post stated today.

Jakabos is a four-time Olympian, making the games in 2004, 2008, 2012 and 2016, her highest finish was sixth place as a relay swimmer. She is a two-time European Short-Course champion, once in the 200 butterfly and once in the 400 IM and has continued to be a point-scoring force in the ISL as well as the World Cup and other international events.

The Hungarian star was a member of Team Iron last year. She has formed a strong 1-2 punch with Katinka Hosszu for Hungary the past decade-plus. Now, she will be competing on a different team for the first time.

Zsuzsanna Jakabos scored 46 points during three meets on the ISL tour last year, fourth most among women on the team.

On Friday, Energy Standard announced the signing of Siobhan Haughey, who was a member of the DC Trident last year.

Energy Standard also announced the re-signing of Imogen Clark, Maxim Stupin, Kliment Kolesnikov and Anastasiya Shkurdai,

The team announced the return of Evgeny Rylov earlier Friday, then also announced the return of Ilya Shymanovich and Mary Sophie Harvey.

Energy Standard, the reigning champions of the ISL, will be even tougher to beat this coming season with the addition of Haughey and Jakabos, assuming the team re-signs league MVP Sarah Sjostrom and 2012 Olympic champs Chad Le Clos and Florent Manaudou.
