I'm confused @Diga.

 

Sanders is a Slavic/Czech name? It doesn't have any weird symbols/accent marks over the consonants.

Neither does it have an overload of the letters c/w/z.

 

Scandzeszrs maybe?

Does his business/enterprise in the food sector have an immigrant name?

 

Last guess: The Pizza Hut founder, born to immigrants from Italy and based on your last clue probably the first person to revolutionize the franchise model.

This one should be easy.

Q1. I have represented my country in more than one sport.

Q2. My son also briefly represented his country in one of the two sports that I played. There were however allegations of nepotism, which turned out to be false.

Q3. I never wore a certain "protective gear" when I played.
