Biography

Sigisfredo Mair was active since the late 1950s, competing in singles and doubles. In doubles he teamed up with Walter Außerdorfer, achieving his greatest success at the 1964 Winter Olympics by winning the bronze medal. Because Außerdorfer was already about to retire, his brother Ernesto Mair became his new partner, and they won a bronze medal at the 1967 World Championships. Sigisfredo Mair’s highest rank in singles was a fourth place at the 1967 European Championships, and he was Italian Champion several times. The brother pair took part in two more Olympic Games but with limited success, and Mair retired after his third Olympics. A trained mason, Mair started a building company together with his two brothers in 1963. In 1967 he married Aloisia Nöckler, a sister of the Italian skier and Olympian Bruno Nöckler, with whom he had four children, but he was killed in a car accident in 1977 at age 38. Together with his wife his younger brother and luge partner Ernesto took over the family business.
