Dr. Keith Johnson, one of the SROSM Sports Medicine Specialists began training with Balazs in preparation for the 2013 IRONMAN Texas. "Not only did we become friends, it became clear that we could help each other in our competitions," said Dr. Johnson. "It has been a pleasure for SROSM to come along side Balazs as a world class athlete who will compete in Kona this year. We have enjoyed the opportunity to support him and celebrate in his great successes as a professional triathlete. It is our mission at SROSM to not only help the recreational athlete but also those that compete at the highest levels."
