The most successful bobber in history. He won 11 world titles, 8 in two-man (1957-61,63,66,68) and 3 in 4-man (60,61,68). At Igls (Innsbruck) in 1964, he loaned his axle to Antony Nash, thus enabling him to continue after his own axle had been broken. The British competitor went on to win the gold medal in front of two Italian sleds.
Already the oldest medallist at Innsbrück, he was of course the oldest gold medallist at Grenoble.
He would probably have won more medals but for the American reluctance for buiding a bob-course at Squaw Valley.
