Central support for Olympic competitors has increased from 1.67
billion forints in 2004 to 2.53 billion forints by this year, said

"Our canoe-kayak, fencing, judo and wrestling teams are capable
of achieving excellent results," he said.
The state secretary announced that the government would
contribute 100 million forints to part-finance the organisation of
the World Modern Pentathlon Championships, scheduled to start in
Budapest on May 29.
