At the World Championships, Ágoston-Mendelényi won three team medals – silvers in 1961 and 1971 and bronze in 1969. Ágoston-Mendelényi’s only individual medal of note came at the 1963 Universiade, where she won individual foil bronze, and a team silver. Domestically, Ágoston-Mendelényi did not win an individual title, her best finish at the Hungarian championships a third in 1969, but she won three Hungarian team foil titles in 1958, 1964 and 1968. Ágoston-Mendelényi graduated from the Hungarian College of Physical Education (now Faculty of Physical Education and Sport Sciences of Semmelweis University) in 1960 as a physiotherapist and physical education teacher and from 1969-72 worked as a physical education teacher with Central Sports School in Budapest.
