Biography

Sándor, Count Török de Szendrő made only a fleeting impression on Olympic history. He took part in twelve shooting events over two Olympic Games with a best position of 5th in a dueling pistol event in 1906. Perhaps the most interesting question about him is that of his parentage. His mother, the Austrian actress Johanna Buska, was known to have had an affair with Crown Prince Rudolph of Austria but in 1880 she married Count Miklós Török de Szendrő who was three decades her senior. Nine months later their son Sándor was born. It has often been suggested that Sándor's date of birth was falsified and that his true father was Rudolf, the heir to the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
