He competed in the 1946 European Championships in the 200, but did not get out of the heats. He qualified for the 1952 Olympics individually and with the national relay team, but did not progress past the first round in Helsinki. After stopping active competition in 1958, Solymossy became a trainer with his club, PVSK in Pécs.
