Somodi István

Olympic Competitor nr 2906

He is from Cluj, in present-day Romania. More than 80% of this city was Hungarian in the early 20th century, but not many of them emigrated after 1918, and the city still has a significant Hungarian population. Consequently, I count this athlete as Romanian
