In the semifinals of the 1972 Olympics 400 metre hurdles, Dieter BÃ¼ttner tumbled over the East German [Christian Rudolph]. A protest by the team management, however, was rejected because he was lying in fifth place and had no chance to reach the final. BÃ¼ttner was German Champion in this event in 1971 and 1972. He later became a teacher for sports, geography and evangelic religion.
Personal Best: 400H â 49.21 (1972).
