Modern Pentathlon (2 gold, 1 silver)
The only repeat winner of the Modern Pentathlon was very lucky in 1952. The
first horse that he'd drawn turned out lame, but the second one was the best
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.
