Gyulay Elected Chairman of Hungarian Olympic Committee


The general assembly of the Hungarian Olympic Committee (MOB) elected Zsolt Gyulay, 57, two-time Olympic champion sprint canoeist, as the organisation’s new chairman on Saturday.

Thirty-four of the 48 members present at the assembly voted for Gyulay, and fourteen voted for the other candidate, Balázs Hajdu, who competed in two Olympic Games in sailing in the Finn class.

The previous chairman, Krisztián Kulcsár, held the position from 2017 until the end of last year when the general assembly of MOB withdrew support from him in a vote of confidence initiated by Kulcsár himself.
