Injuries Akos pulled a muscle during the Athens Olympics which prohibited him from completing the competition. He has also been battling a hip problem for some time.
Other Akos started weightlifting in his native country of Hungary at the age of nine at a school which specialised in physical education.

He moved to Canada in 1990 and represented the country at the 1995 Junior World Championships, the 1997, 1998, 2001 and 2002 World Championships, the 1998 and 2002 Commonwealth Games, and the 1999 Pan American Games.

His physical education teacher asked him to choose a sport and he chose weightlifting as it suited his body type and his father had competed internationally.

His father, Steven, was on the Hungarian team for ten years and was named to the 1984 Olympic team.

Akos is nearing the end of his career and has revealed that he would like to study teaching upon the conclusion of his lifting days.
