OG
Heinrich Retschury took part in the 1912 Olympic Games as a player and in 1924 as a referee.
He was also twice the coach of the national team. He took over from Hugo Meisl between 1914 and 1919 when the famous coach had to go and fight in WWI (he survived and came back). And again in 1937 when his team qualified for the 1938 World Cup. But for Austria there was no World Cup when the Germans annexed it.
