"Based on my own personal experience of benefiting from the products, I would definitely recommend Kannaway to everyone.!" - István Jónyer

Famed for playing at half-distance and for inventing the ‘sidespin loop’ shot, István Jónyer was one of the most dominant table tennis players in the 1970s. From 1968 to 1983, István won several medals in singles, doubles, and team events in the World Table Tennis Championships and in the Table Tennis European Championships. He is a four-time World Champion and four-time European Champion.

Of István’s eight World Championship medals, four are gold medals – one in men’s singles, one in the men’s team event and two in the men’s doubles with fellow Hungarian table tennis greats, Tibor Klampár and Gábor Gergely. István also won the 1970 Men’s Doubles with doubles partner, Tibor Klampár at the English Open, which was organised by the English Table Tennis Association.

Today, István is still an active member of the table tennis community. He joins his old teammates (as well as the younger Tibor Kreisz) on the international veteran circuit where scores of fans come from far and wide to see the table tennis legends whose acrobatic shots they copied.

It was István’s World Champion table tennis partner, Tibor Kreisz who introduced him to Kannaway. Tibor understood how competing at an international level for many years can put a strain on the body and, being an Ambassador for the Kannaway K-Sport Programme, he suggested that István give Kannaway products a try.

"István didn’t know much about CBD products at that point, only that the hemp plant is a universal product with many benefits. István takes Pure Gold twice a day, morning and evening, and applies the Salve to soothe joints. “With Pure Gold, I wake up every morning feeling well-rested, and I am much calmer and more balanced. Based on my own personal experience of benefiting from the products, I would definitely recommend Kannaway to everyone.”

„From pro athletes, to the weekend warrior, to everyday people looking for a way to supplement their system and improve performance, Kannaway offers all athletes the chance to take their workout and exercise plans to the next level.”
