Peter Eberling, a native Austrian, had a brief international speed skating career. In the United States, he was second at the indoor championships in 1964-65 and third in 1966. He came to international prominence in 1972, skating 38,8 in an Innsbruck 500 metre race, which ranked him in that season's top 10. His sprint results also qualified him for the Olympics and World Sprint Championships, where he placed 11th and 20th, respectively. After that year, little was heard of Eberling outside the United States, where he kept skating in national events until the late 1970s. Eberling, who had been enrolled in the U.S. Navy, died of a severe ulcer at the age of 55.
