Biography

As an active competitor, Alfred Schläppi’s greatest moment came at the inaugural 1924 Winter Olympics where, alongside Eduard Scherrer, Alfred Neveu, and his brother Heinrich he won three of the four runs in the four/five man bobsled event and took home a gold medal. His sporting achievements were not limited to this one tournament, however, and he became sufficiently known for his athletic prowess that, after World War II, he and his brother were chosen to organize the 1948 Winter Olympics, which were held in St. Moritz. At his death in April 1981, he was the last surviving member of his gold medal-winning bobsled crew.
