Walter Sell played for Wiener EV for many years, winning several Austrian national ice hockey titles. Later he acted as a player-coach for Telefon Club Bucareşti and was simultaneously coach of the Romanian national team in the 1932/33 season, preceding his national teammate [Ulli Lederer]. Sell was later one of the founders of the short-lived Wiener Eishockey Verein club. The forward represented Austria at six international tournaments. In addition to the 1928 Winter Olympics, he competed at three separately held European Championships (1927-32), and two World Championships (1930, 1931), playing 17 games and scoring five goals. With him, the team was European Champion in 1927 and 1931, the latter concurrent with the bronze medal at the World Championships. He was said to have “disgraced and tarnished” the Austrians with his actions at the 1928 Winter Olympics, and he, [Herbert Klang], and [Hermann “Harry” Weiß] were suspended for 10 months from the national team, although what they actually did is not clear.
