Film portrait of Olympic fencing champion Szilagyi screened in NY
During his visit to the US, Szilagyi, a Hungarian ambassador of talent, has attended several fencing clubs and centres for fostering talent, and on Saturday he visited a foundation set up by Olympic bronze medalist Peter Westbrook, whose goal is helping poor children to integrate socially through sports.
Szilagyi told MTI that sport is a great tool for community-building and social integration, as youngsters are given opportunities to show their talents at an early age.
The film entitled One for All is not only a portrait of Szilagyi but also depicts the rollercoaster ride of successes and failures that an elite athlete goes through.
The screening was organised in cooperation with Hungary’s National Talent Centre (NTK).
