Biography

Over the course of his ten year bobsledding career, Max Angst was a five-time Swiss champion and a bronze medalist in the four-man event at the 1960 World Championships, alongside Hans-Jörg Hirschbühl, Göpf Kottmann, and the non-Olympian René Kuhl (this was a special event, as bobsledding was absent from that year’s Winter Olympics). His greatest success, however, came at the 1956 Winter Olympics, where he took bronze in the two-man event with Harry Warburton. Outside of sports Angst was a butcher and, with his brother Heiri (who won Olympic gold in the four-man), ran a meat business that spread throughout Switzerland and overseas as far as Brazil.
