Biography

Lorenz Schindelholz had an incredibly successful career in international bobsledding in the late 1980s and early 1990s. He won back-to-back World Championships in the four-man event in 1989 and 1990, alongside [Bruno Gerber], [Curdin Morell], and [Gustav Weder]. At the 1991 edition, the quartet slipped to second place, behind their traditional rivals, the Germans. These four were also third and first in the four-man at the 1990 and 1991 European Championships respectively. Schindelholz’s final major international success came at the 1992 Winter Olympics, where Gerber was replaced on the team by [Donat Acklin]. This new quartet was taken off guard by a surprising Austrian victory and finished third in the four-man. Schindelholz retired from active competition shortly after the Olympics.
