TO ESZTER

The personal story of museum founder János Angyal about this pair of sport shoes

Eszter Angyal, my daughter was born in 1986 in the year of the first Jumping Gala and grew up together with it. She gradually  joined the organization of the Jumping Gala: knew everything, helped in everything. She graduated from Corvinus University in Budapest and as of today, speaks four languages. 

She was the translator of Jamie Nieto in 2002 and the victorious athlete – with a result of 228 centimetres – gifted me with his shoes signed for her.
