Rudolf Werlich was a member of the Germany II four-man bob team at the 1936 Garmisch Winter Olympics, which crashed in the first run. The first run was eventful, as three of the 18 teams failed to finish. The crew of Germany II saw their bob continue without them, the second French bob lost its brakesman, while the Czechoslovakians became airborne and crashed. In 1935 and 1937 Werlich was the German four-man bob champion with BC Oberhof.
