SKILL CHALLENGES

After lunch, free throw shooting, penalty and juggling competitions were held. Péter Molnár from Corinthia barely missed from the line and became the 2017 champion while Szilárd Koczor from Budapest Bank was the last one standing at the penalty spot outside. Szilárd was definitely not done for the day, he went on to beat Richárd Zakics, last year's juggling champion who represented Delphi to the title before earning his place with his teammates in the final of the football tournament.

TABLE TENNIS

New challengers arrived to beat last year's champion, Sándor Zakics from Delphi at the table, but their effors were thwarted as he managed to retain his title.

HIKING

More than a dozen hikers lead by AmCham CEO Írisz Lippai-Nagy weathered the rain in the morning as they reached the top of the Nagy Kopasz hegy to climb the Csergezán Pál belvedere.
