He was actually called Guttmann but he officially changed his name. Hajós means "sailor" in Hungarian.
He had wanted to win all three distances, but the start of the 500 m was much too soon after the finish of the 100.
He was the youngest winner in Athens. He would also represent Hungary twice in Football. As an architect, he built the Margarethen Pool in Budapest.
In Amsterdam, he entered 14 plans for a Sportsacademy and Swimming Stadion, so I count these as only one participation.
