Biography

During his career, Norbert Huber competed in both singles and doubles. He was successful in both disciplines, although it was doubles where he achieved the most. The only missing title in an outstanding career was an Olympic victory, partly due to some poor luck. Huber participated in four Winter Olympics. At Sarajevo in 1984 he made a mistake that made him and his partner fall off the toboggan, dropping them from second at the split to ninth at the finish. Four years later he could not compete because of illness. He won both his medals in doubles, bronze in 1992, and silver in 1994 (behind another Italian team with his brother Wilfried Huber and Kurt Brugger). At Lillehammer, a third brother Günther Huber, won a bronze medal in the two-man bobsleigh. Only the fourth brother Arnold Huber failed to win an Olympic medal, settling for fourth place in 1994 in singles luge. Norbert Huber finished his career at the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano.

During his international career (1983-99), Huber won a total of 12 World Championships medals, two gold – in the 1989 team and 1990 doubles, along with five silver and five bronze medals. He won 14 medals at the Europeans– three gold, five silver and six bronze. In the World Cup he captured his first podium and his first win in February 1982 in doubles. Huber was the first athlete to win the overall standings of the World Cup in singles and in doubles in the same year (1984-85 and 1985-86). He holds the record of winning 11 overall World Cups, three in singles and eight in doubles, always with his long-time partner Hansjörg Raffl.

After retiring from racing he managed the family hotel “Mühlwald” in Selva dei Molini together with his wife Brunhilde and her three children. In addition he is a member of the technical staff of the national luge team. Norbert Huber was awarded the Bronze and Silver Cross of Merit of the Army.
