Karch Kiraly Biography

Karch Kiraly was born November 3, 1960 in Jackson, Michigan and is a volleyball player who is the only person to have won Olympic gold medals in both the indoor and beach versions of the sport.

Kiraly was popularly called the Thunderball in Volleyball. He went on to become a fixture on the national team through much of the 1980s as a passer/outside hitter in the two-man or swing hitter serve reception system created by Doug Beals in 1983. Team USA would win Olympic gold medals in 1984 and 1988 with Kiraly. He was team captain for the 1988 Seoul Olympics, wearing #15, and 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 with Steve Timmons (Il Messaggero of Ravenna), he returned to the U.S. to play beach volleyball full time. Kiraly has won a record 148 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-40s, he continued to compete effectively against far younger players; his early-2000s partnership with Mike Lambert revitalized his career. Kiraly's most recent win came in August 2005, when he and Lambert won an AVP tournament in Huntington Beach, California. He has won over $3 million in beach volleyball, also a record.
