Biography

German three-day-eventer Rudolf Lippert finished tenth on [Flucht] at the 1928 Amsterdam Olympic Games. He was also part of the German team but they had to withdraw from the team event after team-mate [Walter Feyerabend] could not finish the cross country section and had to withdraw from the jumping, but Germany were the highest-scoring of the teams who withdrew. He competed in the Olympics on home soil in Berlin in 1936 and finished sixth with [Fasan] in the individual three-day-event, but won the gold medal as part of the winning German team.

Lippert was at the time of the Amsterdam Games a lieutenant of the army, stationed at the Cavalry School in Hannover. By the time the Berlin Games came around he was captain. During World War II he was promoted as commander of the 5th Panzer Division as Major General. He was awarded multiple honors during World War II including the Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross on 9 June 1944, before he was killed-in-action at Bielefeld in April 1945, after being severely wounded and captured by the Americans.
