Biography

György Piller was born as Jekelfalussy. In 1930-31 he was unofficial World Champion in both individual and team sabre, winning team titles in 1933 and 1934. In 1931, he won a team foil silver and bronze in 1929. In a period of only six years, he won 10 Hungarian Championships, six with the sabre and four with the foil. At the 1932 Olympics, Jekelfalussy-Piller was also a member of the jury. The career army officer and sports instructor was coach of the Hungarian team in 1933, when he was still a member of the team.

During the war he was captured by the Russians as an Army Lieutenant-Colonel allied with Germany, but after the war regained his coaching position. At the 1956 Melbourne Olympics he was still Hungarian head coach. After the Soviet’s violent suppression of the 1956 Hungarian Uprising Jekelfalussy-Piller did not return to his home country, leaving for the USA to join the family of his daughter and continued to work as a coach.
