Biography

The regular brakesman of Felix Endrich, Fritz Waller enjoyed several successes in the late 1940s. In the two-man bob, they finished runner-up at the 1947 World Championships, before capturing the Olympic gold medal before a home crowd in St. Moritz. They confirmed their status a year later, winning also the world title. They had already won that award in the four-man event two years earlier, and added a bronze at the 1949 Worlds.
