Tribute to Laszlo Sarosy


The UIPM Sports movement in Germany is in mourning after one of Modern Pentathlon’s most admired coaches, Laszlo Sarosy, died on June 10 at the age of 79.

The Hungarian native spent more than 30 years coaching athletes to global success from the State Performance Centre for Fencing and Modern Pentathlon in Heidenheim, Baden-Wurttemberg.

His trainees included Sabine Krapf, a four-time UIPM World Championships medallist who also enjoyed global success in Fencing, Kim Raisner, who succeeded him as Germany’s national coach, and the Beijing 2008 Olympic champion Lena Schoeneborn.
