Hungary


18-year old swimmer Alfréd Hajós became the first of many Hungarians to be crowned Olympic Champion on 11 April 1896 when he overcame tremendous adversity to win both the 100m and 1200m Freestyle events in freezing ocean waters.

56 Hungarian athletes have been Olympic Champion prior to WW2 winning a total of 27 Gold.
