Werner Loeckle was a member of the German bronze medal-winning coxed eights at the 1936 Berlin Olympics. The three leading boats, USA, Italy and Germany crossed the line virtually together with just one second separating first from third, but victory went to the USA, with Italy second. The Nazi leaders were not amused and left immediately.

The same year the boat from RG Wiking Berlin won the German Championships and Loeckle was also runner-up with [Gerhard Völs], [Hans-Joachim Hannemann] and [Herbert Schmidt] in the coxless fours. In 1937, they finished third. Loeckle became a gynecologist with his own practice in Frankfurt on Main, and published several medical books.
