In 1952, the definition of breaststroke was such that the arms had to move in parallel. Éva Székely was the first to use the butterfly stroke when she won the gold at Helsinki. By 1956, the definition had changed and the butterfly was a medal discipline of its own.
She was the wife of Gyarmati Dezsö. Their daughter Andrea won silver in backstroke and bronze in butterfly in '72, and then married Mihaly Hesz, gold in K1 in '68, silver in '64. Gyarmati and Szekely emigrated for a short while to the US, but returned to Hungary.
