Biography

Nicolae Mărăscu played centre in rugby football for the Romanian team that won a bronze medal at the 1924 Paris Olympics. There were only three teams in the 1924 Olympic tournament and the Romanians won the bronze medal despite losing both of their matches badly, losing 61-3 to France, and 37-0 to the United States. Mărăscu played for Stadiul Român in București and played ¾-center. He actually founded the Stadiul Român team while he was a teenager. He played for Stade Français in 1920 and Lille (FRA) in 1921-22, while he was studying industrial chemistry in France. He also played for Romania at the 1919 Inter-Allied Games, appearing in the match versus France, and earned five international caps between 1919-27, also playing against France and Czechoslovakia in 1927. Mărăscu’s family paid the train fare for his teammates from Stadiul Român, more than half of the 23-strong touring party
