Summary

Whilst German and Italians had battled for dominance in the years between Olympics it has been the pairings of Hansjörg Raffl / Norbert Huber and Kurt Brugger / Wilfried Huber who had held the upper hand during 1991-92 and the Italians had placed 1st and 2nd in every round of the World Cup,

At Albertville performances reverted to the form of the previous season as the 1-2-3 places matched exactly the positions from the 1991 World Championships. The ex-East German pair of Jan Behrendt and Stefan Krauße, silver medallists in Calgary, went one place better this time and set the fastest time on both runs to win the gold medal.

The pairing of Yves Mankel and Thomas Rudolph, designated Germany II, had a close contest with Raffl and Huber for silver and bronze which was decided in favour of the Germans by five thousandths of a second. By finishing fourth Romania achieved their best Olympic performance in this sport.
