Biography

Rainer Borkowsky was only 14-years-old, when he claimed the silver medal as the cox in the coxed pairs with [Horst Arndt] and [Moritz von Groddeck] at the 1956 Melbourne Olympics. They were, at the time, the reigning West German and European champions and successfully defended both titles in 1957. After von Groddeck left Rudergesellschaft Wiesbaden-Biebrich 1888, and moved to Ratzeburg, Arndt and Borkowsky rowed with coxed fours and eights, and finished third at the German Championships on several occasions.
