Támas Bujkó was a Hungarian judoka who met a gruesome death in a London subway station. Bujkó won three medals at the World Judo Championships – silver in 1983 60 kg., and bronzes in 1985 60 kg and 1987 65 kg. He also won bronze medals at the 1986 Goodwill Games and the 1987 European Championships. Bujkó later settled in England. In late 2007, Ference Ifi, in an attempt to collect some post, visited his former London flat, then occupied by Bujkó. They argued but did not know each other well. However, in March 2008, Ifi attacked Bujkó at the Sudbury Hill tube station in northwest London. He threw acid in his face, and then stabbed and beat him to death. Bujkó had 17 stab wounds around his eyes and also sustained collapsed lungs and broken ribs in the attack. In February 2009, Ifi was found guilty and sentenced to a minimum of 16 years in prison.
