The pair were dating when she asked him to be her coach in 2012, according to a New York Times profile of them published this week.

Hosszu told the newspaper it has been "definitely difficult" to balance the relationship with coaching, with Tusup raising eyebrows among some for his harsh training style. “He’s pretty hard as a coach,” she told the Times, “but at home he’s supersweet and loving and really funny. So we can laugh a lot.”

During competition on Saturday, Hosszu finished first in her heat for the Women's 400 meter individual medley, coming tantalizingly close to setting a new world record.

Hosszu picked up gold in the event and smashed the record set in 2012 by Ye Shiwen.
