Biography

Paul Nedelcovici played 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. Nedelcovici played only in the match against France, and that was his only international appearance. He played for Sportul Studențesc in București and played mid-row lock forward. The legend has it that Nedelcovici raided his father’s business cash drawer to help fund his trip to Paris.
