Feb 9 2018 - Imrich Kiraly

It is with heavy hearts that Athletics New Brunswick announce the loss of one of its members.

Born in Pilisszántó, Hungary and raised in Czechoslovakia, Imrich moved to Ontario in 1969, and then to Yarmouth in 1997.

 

A competitor in Czechoslovakia, Imrich was named to the National Decathlon Team in 1968. At the 1970 and 1971 Canadian Track & Field Championships, Imrich won bronze in the decathlon. Competing as a master's athlete, Imrich won an extraordinary number of national medals, including two golds and two silvers in 2014. His achievements also include 13 provincial masters records, spanning across three different age groups, and an induction into the Yarmouth Sports Hall of Fame in 2017.

 

Imrich was a valued member of our association and of the Saint John Track Club, always lending a helping hand and showing true sportsmanship. He will be dearly missed by the athletics community.
