Biography

With his twin brother, Bernd, Jörg Landvoigt was one of the most titled rowers in German history. Together the twins competed in the 1972 Olympics in the eights, winning a bronze medal. Jörg then rowed with the winning eight at the 1973 European Championship, although Bernd did not accompany him in that boat. The twins then formed a coxless pair, and were never beaten in that event. They won Olympic gold medals in 1976 and 1980, were World Champions in 1974, 1975, 1978, and 1979, and European Champions in 1973. He later became a sports administrator. His son, Ike Landvoigt, became World Champion in the eights in 1995, and later rowed coxless fours at the 1996 and 2000 Olympics.
