MOL Talent Support Programme Sport aims to help the development of young sportsmen. Talented young people having achieved great results often find themselves in a situation where the necessary conditions cannot be ensured by their families and associations. We think, however, that they deserve them, having won the recognition of their seniors by their perseverance and will power. Who could foresee which one of them is to become a European, a World or an Olympic Champion?

In 2016 we published the call for proposal for the 10th time.

We invited young sportsmen aged between 10 and 18 to nominate if they had achieved good results in national or international competitions but found themselves in need of financial aid for their advancement. Nominees could hand in proposals for buying sporting goods or support in travel costs.

In 2016, 111 young people aged between 10-18 received a support of 26 million HUF in all. Trustees’ decisions were guided by former results, but family and financial situation of applicants were equally considered.  Among the supportees there are Anna Márton junior world champion in sabre fencing, István Péni European Junior Champion in sport shooting who has participated already in Rio OG.

The MOL Talent Support Classic Programme continues to support former applicants who are now over 18 years of age but who are still pursuing successful sports careers. In 2016, 15 young sportsmen receive altogether nearly 5 million HUF in this category.
