Cyclist Heinz Hasselberg was a member of the German pursuit team with [Erich Arndt], [Hans Hoffmann] and [Karl KlÃ¶ckner], that lost the bronze medal race against Great Britain at the 1936 Berlin Olympics. Arndt was the one who tailed-off from his fellow team members on the penultimate lap. In the semi-final the team was beaten by France by more than 12 seconds.
Hasselberg was the German 1,000m time trial and tandem champion 1937-39, and the sprint champion in 1937. During World War II he survived after being seriously wounded at the Eastern front. After the war he tried motor-paced cycling but had to retire in 1947 after a bad track accident.
