Biography

Swiss rower Hans Schöchlin won the gold medal in the coxed pairs together with his brother [Karl] and 13-year-old cox [Hans Bourquin] at the 1928 Amsterdam Olympics. Both brothers also won the 1922 Europeans in the double sculls. They then moved to the coxed eights, placing second at the 1923 and 1924 Europeans, and winning the title in 1925. In the next two years they moved to the coxed fours and won silver medals at the 1926 and 1927 Europeans. In 1930 and 1931, they won another two silvers with the coxless fours.

As a writer, Hans took part in the 1936 Olympics in the mixed literature event of the arts competition with the work Geist und Sport (Mind and Sports), a small pamphlet which was written as a philosophic novel. It included reflections on the sport in general and some biographical details of his own sports career. Hans Schöchlin later became director of the Technical Center in Biel.
