Summary

Former Hungarian swimmer Alfréd Hajós who won two gold medals at the first Olympic Games 1896 in Athens, and Dezső Lauber, former Hungarian tennis player and participant in the 1908 London Games, produced a Plan for a Stadium, for which they received the silver medal. Lauber was an architect by trade and later became a secretary-general of the Hungarian Olympic Committee. Hajós was one of only two Olympians, the other being Walter Winans, to win medals in both sport and art competitions.
