Nadler, a left halfback, was a member of the Hungarian soccer team at the 1924 Olympics. He did not appear in any games during the single elimination tournament. Hungary won its first game against Poland, 5-0, but then lost to Egypt in the second round, 3-0.
The slender Nadler appeared in six international games for Hungary with his "repertoire of imaginative moves," according to Andrew Handler in From the Ghetto to the Games. Nadler also played with the club MTK Budapest. A starting halfback from 1923-1926, he helped MTK capture three Hungarian League championships in four years (they also won the Hungary Cup in 1925). Nicknamed "Pubi," Nadler died in World War II as a labor serviceman.
