RIP Les Karayan


The saddest news was delivered this weekend. Our loved friend, Les Karayan lost his life in an unfortunate cycling accident on Saturday morning in Brisbane. Les was actively collaborating with our sport in Australia as a player and also with the organisation of different events, one of them being the Champions Cup that will take place in Brisbane in October.

As a player, he represented Australia as a member of the National Team in many occasions. As a coach he was in charge of the Ladies National Team at the World Championship in 2006. He was also part of the winning team of the last edition of the Australia Day Cup, celebrated in Melbourne last January.

We are loosing a hockey enthusiast, a good player, a good coach, a kind father and husband, and a good mate.

From here, we would like to send our condolence to the family and closest friends. Les will always remain in our memories.

We will miss you buddy!
