Peter Gorny was a rower who finished seventh both with the coxed pairs at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics for the mixed German team together with [GÃ¼nter Bergau] and cox [Karl-Heinz Danielowski], and with the eights at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics, then representing East Germany. Both boats missed the final and won the B-finals. The coxed pairs were also the 1964 European Champions, adding a silver medal in 1967. They also won East German titles from 1963-65. Gorny and Bergau had already won the title with non-Olympian Bernd Giza in 1962, and both also claimed one more national championship in 1965 with the coxed fours.
After the retirement of his longtime partner Bergau, Peter Gorny continued rowing, by then in coxless fours. He won a bronze medal at the 1969 Europeans and won the East German title the same year. He then won his second European title in 1971 with [Werner Klatt] in the coxless pairs, adding another East German title the same year.
