Born in Budapest, Tarics was part of the Hungarian team which won the gold medal, pushing Germany into second. He played two matches, and scored two goals. He also won gold medals with the Hungarian team at the 1933, 1935 and 1937 International University Games as well as the unofficial, German-led 1939 International University Games. He was able to escape post-war Soviet-occupied Hungary when his engineering degree earned him a teaching fellowship at an American university.[which?] He went on to establish and grow a successful architecture and engineering practice in San Francisco, California.
Tarics attended the 2012 London Olympics as the oldest living Olympic champion and turned 100 in September 2013. Following the death of Attilio Pavesi, Tarics was the oldest living Olympic champion.
