Karch Kiraly Biography

He is of Hungarian descent; his father László fled Hungary in the wake of the failed 1956 Hungarian Revolution and emigrated to the United States. The Kiraly family eventually settled in Santa Barbara, California, where he led his high school volleyball team to an undefeated senior season and was named the state's high school MVP. During his high school years, he also played for the U.S. junior national team.

Kiraly went on to attend UCLA, earning a B.S. in biochemistry in 1983 while leading the Bruins to three national titles (1979, 1981, 1982). He also made his first appearances for the senior national team while at UCLA. Kiraly went on to become a fixture on the national team through much of the 1980s as a combination setter/hitter. Team USA would win Olympic gold medals in 1984 and 1988 with Kiraly. He was also named by FIVB (International Volleyball Federation) as the top player in the world in 1986 and 1988.

After the 1988 Olympics, he retired from the national team. After a stint of club volleyball in Italy (Il Messaggero of Ravenna), he returned to the U.S. to play beach volleyball full-time. Kiraly would win a record 146 professional beach volleyball titles, and partnered with Kent Steffes to win the first men's Olympic beach volleyball tournament in 1996. Even in his mid-forties, he continues to compete effectively against far younger players; his early-2000s partnership with Mike Lambert revitalized his career. He has won over $3 million in prize money in beach volleyball, also a record.
