Brothers Carl Heinrich, [Oscar] and [Gustav Goßler] were members of the German eight which reached the final at the 1900 Paris Olympics although they lost in the heats.

[Alexander Gleichmann von Oven, Jr.] was coxswain for the Hamburger Germania Ruderclub crew, but was removed for the final and replaced by an unknown younger and 45 pounds lighter French coxswain, but the crew still finished fourth and last in the final.

The Goßler brothers were also members of the German coxed fours, winning the the B final for the Deutscher Ruderverband. Carl Heinrich later became a professional soldier, and was killed in action during the first days of World War I, while serving with Kaiser Wilhelm 2nd Grand Ducal Hessian No. 116.
