  whiteshark: Kinzel, Anton from Austria.

Olympic participation (between 1956-1984):

It seems he started his 'official' chess career soon after WWII were he is found competing right from the get go for 'Österreichische Turn- und Sportunion Horn' (Waldviertel in Lower Austria, founded Jan 6 1946, adding the chess section March 1 1947) - indicating that he had already finished his academical education. This is raising slight concerns how this young man was able to stay out of 'trouble' through 1939-45 all while growing two highly successful independent careers. Still, I might be completely off at this one.

In the 1950s and 1960s Anton Kinzel was one of the leading Austrian chess players.

From 1983-1986 he was 'Vizepräsident des Obersten Gerichtshofs' (Vienna); his official title 'Mag. Anton Kinzel, Vizepräsident des OGH, Wien'.


Supreme Court of Justice (Austria)
