The boat won its heat in 6:40.8 minutes ahead of the favored Norway and Italy boats. They lost their semi-final and also closely lost the repêchage semi-final and missed the final. Achim came third at the 1954 German Championships in the coxless pairs with non-Olympian Werner Häring, and in 1955 Achim and his brother Hans finished second in the coxed pairs.
