Biography

Together with Emília Rotter, László Szollás formed one of the first great Hungarian figure skating pairs. They placed second at the 1930 and 1931 European Championships, before winning their first World Championships in 1931 in Berlin. In a close contest with the Brunets of France, they failed to take the gold at the 1932 Olympic and World Championships, placing third and second respectively. They then won three World Championships in a row (1933-1935) and the 1934 European crown, but again failed to win at the Olympics, this time losing out to the home favourites Herber and Baier. The sixfold Hungarian champions retired after that season. Szollás fought with the Germans on the Eastern front in World War II. He was taken prisoner, and spent four years in a Siberian camp. Upon return, he became a sports doctor in Budapest.
