Ivanie Blondin Husband Konrad Nagy Is A Hungarian Athlete
Ivanie Blondin husband Konrad Nagy is a speed skater from Hungary who participated in the 2014 and 2018 Olympics.
Born on March 26, 1992, the 30-year-old athlete has been in the field of speed skating for over a decade. He began his career as a short-track speed skater and competed in distances of 500m, 1000m, and 1500 meters.
However, later Nagy switched to long-track skating in 2013 and began playing in 3000, 5000, and 10000-meter distance skating. The 2014 Russia Winter Olympics was his first time playing in the Olympics, and it was the most significant event he participated in, considering the scale of the competition.
Four years later, he qualified for the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, in his national team. Unfortunately, Konrad could not give his country blood in both of his Olympic appearances. He could not win any medals.
Nonetheless, it does not deny that Nagy is the most decorated speed skater in his nation. For the time being, he holds 1000, 1500, 3000, 5000, and 10000-meter records for Hungary.
On November 15, 2013, Konrad set his first national record in the 1500 m skate at Utah Olympic Oval in Salt Lake City. The same year he made another history in the 10000 m skate at Ice Rink Piné in Italy. He has set an example for many youths in his homeland who wish to pursue a career in sports.
Nagy, 30, did not participate in the 2022 Olympics in Beijing. But he attended the event as an audience member with his spouse Ivanie. Blondin won two medals, a gold in the team pursuit and a silver in the mass start.

A small group of attendees, which includes their family, relatives, and close friends, were invited to the private ceremony. Blondin further shared a gorgeous image of the couple sharing a kiss in the direct sunlight.
