Biography

Paul Fischer was a member of the founding group of the successful football team of FC Altona 93 in the years 1898 and 1899. He went missing-in-action between 1939 and 1945 in World War II, the date and circumstances of which are completely unknown. In 1908 he took part in the 100 metres but withdrew after 40 m and, as a gymnast, he also competed in the individual all-around.

The identity of the Olympian Paul Fischer is not yet definitely settled as, at that time, there was both a Berlin football player and a track and field athlete also named Paul Fischer (1882-1942), as well as a gymnast with the name Paul Tischer, living in Germany who could have been him.

Personal Best: 100 – 11.4 (1899).
