Biography

At the Olympics 1968 in Grenoble Floth and his co-pilot Pepi Bader won the silver medal although they had the same time after four runs as the Italians Eugenio Monti and Luciano de Polis, but by the rules of the time, the time for the final decided, giving the gold medal to Monti and de Polis. Hanns Kilian was then FRG Chef de Mission and president of the Bob- und Schlittenverband für Deutschland (BSD). As he did not protest the decision he was soundly attacked in the German press and, angered and disappointed, resigned his position with the BSD. In 1970 Bader became World Champion in the two-man bob with Bader. In 2005 Floth died from cancer at the age of 71.
