He and his cousin Gerald were Britons living in Athina, which is why he competed at both Olympics there.

He is the only shooter who also competed in Paris, and since there was no shooting at St. Louis, this makes him the only person to compete at all early Olympiads where his sport was performed.

He was born in Praha and played for DFC Prag, Although Bohemia had a separate Olympic team in 1912, they were not allowed to enter a football team because they were not (any longer) members of FIFA. I class the Czech-born members of the Austrian team as Czechs, therefore.
