Biography

West German luger Hans Brandner, a plumber by trade, took part in three consecutive Olympic Games and won the silver medal at the 1976 Innsbruck Olympics with his doubles partner [Balthasar Schwarm], behind the East Germans [Hans Rinn] and [Norbert Hahn], who they defeated at the 1979 World Championships in Königssee. They also won a World bronze medal in 1977. At the European Championships, they were champions in 1977, won a silver medal in 1972, and twice won bronze medals, in 1973 and 1980. Their medal count was completed by seven German Championships (1971-73, 1975, 1977, 1979 and 1980). Brandner and his family now operate a hotel, the Hochkalter, at Ramsau near Berechtesgaden.
