zaol.hu - Diamond-Hody Sport Dragon boat duel

A couple of days ago Diamond-Hody Sport Dragon boat duel was held by Kanizsa dragon boaters. There was one really special little girl, who received plenty of awards in the competition. She was born prermature and luckily there were many supporters who donated money for her very expensive medical treatment in the USA. A separate competition was held for her as a gesture to express our gratitude for all the people who supported her through her journey. Of course, she defeated each competitor who played against her. Due to her extensive therapy she has only little free time to play recreational games, and it did matter a lot for her. We would like thank everybody again for making this little girl’s day unforgettable. Thank you!

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

Young kayakers and canoeists paddled for WebEye Challange Boats
Young kayakers and canoeists paddled for WebEye Challange Boats

Young competitors of the new kayak-canoe generation, the 4. Kids age group  took part two times at 3 events of contest organised by the Hungarian Kayak-Canoe Federation in Sukoró.Fans visiting Lake Velence could keep their fingers for competitors in 2000 metres single of the National Student Olympics as well as in 1000 and 4000 metres single events on the occasion of  the Kids, Children and Teen Hungarian Championship. It was a curiosity that –  thanks to  Lambda-Com and Hódy Sport Ltd. – the single event winners could win „WebEye Challange Boats” thus reviving the tradition of red boats.The best 14-years-old girl kayaker, boy kayaker and canoeist can use these boats for a period of one year.

„The Hungarian Kayak-Canoe sport may be proud of numerous successful competitors, but in order to ensure the future successes we have to think of the junior age groups in due time. This branch of sport is very underfinanced, the boats are considered expensive sports equipments, therefore only few young sportsmen have the opportunity to make good use of their talent.Lambda-Com Ltd has decided to take part in supporting young talents  and in reviving the tradition of „Csepel red boats”. 20 years ago each of the best competitors  taking part at contests organised by the Hungarian Kayak-Canoe Federation could take home a red boat for a whole year. There was a great interest among young sportsmen: they prepared themselves with great enthusiasm, since it was a great honour for them to possess a red kayak or canoe.” –Anikó Bernáth, communication leader of Lambda-Com Ltd said.

Lambda-Com Ltd. is a fully Hungarian-owned multinational company that provides complex transport informatics services in 14 European countries. As a modern, innovative company, it is aware that over the environmental-conscious character of its services it is responsible for the direct environment as well. Besides, commitment to sport plays an important role in everyday life of company’s employees. Building on these values, Lambda-Com Ltd met with Hódy Sport Ltd which is a nationally and internationally recognised racing boat building company. Thanks to the cooperation between these companies and the partnership of the Hungarian Kayak-Canoe Federation  the tradition of red boats has now been revived with the aim of supporting young kayakers.

„We trust that the honour and the related success will motivate young paddler and winners possessing these state-of–the art sport equipments can continue to increase their  performance.  We hope that this championship will draw attention to this talented, young generation and „WebEye Challange Boats” will significantly help them to become even World and Olympic Champions of the future. But what is much more important :all this continues to strengthen their adherence to sport and they set an example for their generation as well.” – Anikó Bernáth added.
