Biography

Erwin Huber placed 15th at the 1928 Amsterdam Olympics in the decathlon and fourth eight years later at Berlin. In 1935 he earned his only German title in the decathlon, also placing second in 1932 and 1936. He was shown in the prologue of the 1936 film Olympia by Leni Riefenstahl as the Discus Thrower of Myron, who embodied the epitome of the Aryan Man for the Nazis. He later coached the modern pentathletes for the 1972 Games.

Huber was an educated sports teacher, who for a short period in 1934-35 was a lecturer in the Württemberg Association of Athletics Federation, publishing a textbook in 1941. His son Horst, who was a national-level sprinter in the 1950s, was married to sprinter Steffi Pachnicke.
