Judo aficionado Felix von Solemacher died at age of 65


“It was really sad news”, expressed EJU President László TOTH, when he learned about the passing of world photographer Felix VON SOLEMACHER.

The Bavarian aristocrat was 65 years old. “I booked him for all Hungarian international Judo events. He was always coming with a hat and a smile on his face. He handed lots of print-outs to athletes, coaches and officials. Felix really became a good friend of mine and my favorite photographer”, tells Tóth.

“Judo Bundesliga time in Germany meant, you expected to meet Felix with his hat and his camera. He accidently even came twice to Abensberg, on a Non-Bundesliga weekend”, recounts EJU Vice President Otto KNEITINGER. “We will definately miss him. He was a beloved member of the international Judo family.”
