Tibor Mamusich’s father was the president of the local Rowing Affiliation in Baja, so it is no wonder that he chose this sport at the age of 16. From 1931, he attended University of Law in Budapest, where he competed as an athlete of the Hungária EE. Between 1933 and 1941, he won 10 national championship titles in different disciplines. Together with Károly Győry Mamusich won four gold medals and one silver medal at the European Championships. He won two of his gold medals (1933 and 1934) in the coxed pairs, one in eights (1934) and one in the coxless pairs (1935). In the latter discipline he finished fourth at the 1936 Olympics with Károly Győry. They also competed in coxed pairs, but did not start in the semi-final, due to the heavy schedule of the competition. At the 1935 World College Games he won two more gold medals in the coxless pairs and eights.

After completing his university studies in 1937, he moved back to Baja, where he rowed for another year and then worked as a lawyer. In addition to his work from 1958 he worked for a short time as a coach for local rowers. He was also the deputy head of the Baja Iron and Steel Cooperative. His cousin Mihály Mamusich was the renowned journalist, lawyer, and sports manager.
