German rower Martin Stahnke won a bronze medal in coxless pairs at the 1908 London Olympics alongside [Martin Stahnke]. Shortly before the Games they finished second at the German Championships. The Henley course at that time was so narrow, that only two boats could start beside each other per race.
Stahnke moved to the single sculls after the London Games and at Stockholm in 1912 he reached the quarterfinals. In 1909 he was runner-up at the German Championships. During his career Stahnke claimed 105 wins in singles, doubles, fours and eights.
