Biography

West German Heinfried Engel placed eighth in the pole vault final at the 1968 Olympic Games as the third-best German, behind his teammate [Claus Schiprowski] and East German [Wolfgang Nordwig]. He had the same result at the 1971 European Championships. In 1969 he was nominated for this event but could not start due to the West German boycott. From 1970-72 he also started at the European Indoor Championships. Domestically he won the 1969 title, was runner-up in 1967-68, and Indoor Champion in 1969 and 1970. He also managed to set two European Indoor Records within one week in 1969 (5.22 and 5.23 m).
