Slovak Canoeing mourns the death of a former canoe slalom paddler Peter Nagy. Two-time Olympian passed away at the age of 56 after a long illness.

Peter Nagy has been a representative of Slovakia and before that of Czechoslovakia for many years. He was a member of national teams from 1990 until 2001. He has been involved in clubs from Liptovsky Mikulaš as well as Bratislava.
His major success was at the 1991 ICF Canoe Slalom World Championships in Ljubljana where he won a bronze medal in men’s K1 team events together with Pavel Prindiš and Luboš Hilgert (for Czechoslovakia).
He represented Slovakia at two Olympic Games. In 1996 in Atlanta he was 13th and four years later in Sydney he occupied 12th place. 12th place was also his best individual result at World Championships.
We would like to express sincere condolences to his family and friends. Rest in peace.
