Biography

Nicolae Neagoe from Romania’s premier winter sports resort of Sinaia acted as brakeman for pilot Ion Panţuru in the two-man event when they won their country first ever Winter Olympic medal at Chamonix in 1968. He was also part of the Romanian team in the four-man event and might have expected to win another medal had not the event being shortened to two runs due to bad weather. Neagoe was a regular member of Romanian team throughout the late sixties and early seventies and, although he failed to win a World Championship medal, he won six medals at European Championships including four-man gold in 1967 and 1971.
