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.
