Sprinter Gerhard Wucherer first trained as an industrial clerk, then studied medicine and became a physician with his own surgery practice. With the West German sprint relay he came in sixth at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics, and was eliminated in the second round of the 100 metres. Four years later in MÃ¼nchen he won a bronze medal with the relay, and did not advance to the second round of the 100. At the 1969 Europeans, when West Germany boycotted all events except the relays, he earned another bronze with the sprint relay. At the 1971 Europeans, Wucherer won a silver medal in the individual 100, but the West German relay team was disqualified for an illegal second exchange. At the 1970 European Cup Wucherer finished third both with the relay and in the 100. He also started at the European Indoors in 1968-69 and 1972.
Wucherer set three indoor world records in the 60 metres with 6.90, 6.74 and 6.72 in 1969 and 1972. Domestically he won two indoor titles (1969 over 50 and 1972 over 60 metres) and one outdoor title (1971 with the sprint relay). In 1972 he was awarded the Silver Bay Leaf.
Personal Best: 100 â 10.24 (1971).
