As a colonel in the Army of the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy, he participated with the Austrian sabre team at the 1912 Stockholm Olympics, where he won a silver medal in team event. After the disintegration of the Monarchy, as an athlete of the Magyar Tiszti Vívó Club, he participated at the 1928 Amsterdam Olympics as a member of the Hungarian national team, where he competed in épée team event.
