Biography

Willi Fuggerer was the top German amateur sprinter at the start of 1960s. Hailing from Nürnberg, Fuggerer was selected to the German national team in 1960 after he had won almost every local competition he entered at the end of 1950s. The high point of Fuggerer’s career was probably at the 1964 Olympics, where in the tandem semifinals he and [Klaus Kobusch] apparently won 2-1 against the Italian team, but were disqualified in the third race for moving out of their lane in the sprint. Fuggerer and Kobusch protested without success and won bronze after beating the Dutch team in the third-place race. Fuggerer also was fifth in the sprint at the 1964 Olympics.

Nationally Fuggerer won nine German titles between 1961-65 – sprint in 1964 and 1965, kilometre time trial in 1961, and tandem in 1961-63 (with Gerd Modrow) and 1964-65 (with Kobusch). He also won two sprint silvers (1961, 1962) and one kilometre time trial bronze (1962) at the German Championships. Fuggerer never turned professional and retired from sports after 1965 season, after which he worked as a long time cycling coach with his club RC Herpersdorf.
