Biography

Wolfgang Hottenrott won a bronze medal in the coxless pairs at the 1964 Tokyo Olympics alongside [Michael Schwan]. A few weeks earlier they had won the West German title and a silver medal at the Europeans. The next year both also won the national title and another silver medal at the Europeans. Both were also members of the West German coxless fours champions.

Hottenrott then claimed another two West German titles in 1967 with the coxless fours and the eights, winning the national title again in 1968. With the so-called Deutschland-Achter (Germany Eight) he won a gold medal at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics and the crew was elected Team of the Year. In 1972 at München he was again recruited for the eights, but the boat came in a disappointing fifth.

After his active career Hottenrott took over his father’s company for sanitary installations in Hannover.
