English translation:Imre Nagy
Explanation:
No, I was totally wrong about his political point of view. In fact, the Soviet invasion of Hungary took place with the aim to stop Imre Nagy from reforming the dictatorship of the communist party. He was kind of a Gorbachev, evidently - with the difference that he was executed after the Soviets "restored order" in Hungary.
Sorry I "guessed" or "remembered" in my first answer - now I checked.

Imre Nagy


Explanation:
It's a persons name - or at least that's how I remember it from the cruel 'fifties. Mr. Imre Nagy was the Hungarian Communist Party leader in 1956, I think. Sorry I don't remember exactly what his political stand was. I think he took over after the Soviet invasion (with Soviet support of course).
Would be nice to know how he entered a sports site on the web. Maybe it's the name of a State owned company, if there is still a thing like state owned companies in Hungary.
Caution - I don't speak Hungarian. I don't know much about Hungarian history. Let's hope somebody has better knowledge.

Explanation:
No, it isn't the name of a State owned company :-). The word 'nagy' means large, big, and 'Nagy' is one of the most frequent family names in Hungary. There are about two columns of people called 'Imre Nagy' in the Budapest phone book.
