His time of 21.4 sec was an Olympic record until 1932, but that may have
been because the race was run on a straight course. He was fortunate in his
final in that three rivals were penalized one yard for making a false start
after he had been somewhat restive on his marks. He won convincingly by three

horse in Finland. And then he turned up 20 minutes late for the shooting,
but the competition hadn't started yet because of some Soviet protests.
He also became World Champion in 1950 and '51.

According to the web-site for the
Committee, he was born in Slovakia, but they do not call him Slovakian.
Considering he died in Budapest and his first names are definitely
Hungarian, he should be counted as an Hungarian.
At 50 yards at St-Louis, the judges could not agree on the result of the final, so a second race was swam. Charles Daniels came third.
He also won silver at 100 m at Athina in 1906.
The 100 m event at Paris is not listed in all sources, but seems to have been a separate, official event (Information supplied by the IASF, according to the Hungarian authors) The event is notably completely absent in Mallon.
Since Halmay was among the medals in the shortest event in all Olympics between 1900 and 1908, he certainly merits the extra 25% for the 100 meters.
