Next to the entrance of the Etalonsport Primary and Sport School (8 Tövishát street) in Pestszentlőrinc a marble plaque commemorates Sándor Iharos, athlete, who lived in the district.

In honour of the 12 times world record holder and the best sportman of the world in 1955, the Iharos Memorial Running Race is organized every year in the district. The students of the local schools compete against each other to win the memorial trophy that can be kept for a year.
