Heinz Kaufmann was a member of the coxed eights at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, which won the bronze medal. The American, Italian, and German boats crossed the finish line within one second each other, but Germany was ultimately third behind the US and Italy. The Nazi leaders were not amazed and left immediately. The same year the boat from RG Wiking Berlin won the German Championships. One year later he earned the national title with the coxed fours, and won the European title as well. In 1941 he won his last German title with the coxed eights.
