Biography

One of the few lugers to win three Olympic medals and two gold medals, Paul Hildgartner uniquely won his gold medals 12 years apart. In 1972, Hildgartner joined Walter Plaikner to win the Olympic doubles luge gold medal.

Hildgartner was also World Champion in singles in 1978, and in doubles in 1971 (with Plaikner). Hildgartner was the singles World Cup leader in both 1981 and 1983.
