IAAF.org: IAAF mourns loss of General Secretary Istvan Gyulai

2006-03-12

The IAAF regrets to announce that Istvan Gyulai, who has been General Secretary since 1991, passed away in the early hours of this morning. He was 62 years old.

“It is with deep regret that I have to announce the death of a friend and valued colleague,” said IAAF President Lamine Diack this morning.

Istvan Gyulai accepted and supported the big races of SCC-RUNNING 

“Istvan devoted his entire life to our sport. As a young man, he was an international athlete in the 400m and then became Head of Sport for Hungarian TV, combining that career with important positions in Hungarian and international sport. He was a member of the IAAF Council from 1984 until 2001, and was appointed IAAF General Secretary in 1991, working tirelessly and with great imagination for the cause of world athletics. His colleagues on the Council and in our Member Federations, as well as all the members of IAAF staff, will sadly miss his friendly manner, his intelligence and his energy."
