  • Description

    Wolfgang Zimmerer of West Germany won the world Four-man Bobsleigh championship at St. Moritz on Sunday (27th January). He beat the Swiss number two Bombsleigh piloted by Hnas Candrian, by four tenths of a second.

    The championship is decided by the aggregate time over four runs down the 1600 metre (just over one mile) track. Before the final run, Zimmerer and ???s crew of Wurzer, Utzschneider and Schumann, were leading the Swiss by one hundredth of a second. they then hurtled down the track with its fifteen curves in one minute 12.54 seconds. The red Swiss sleigh, starting a few minutes later, was faster over the first fifty yards but dropped behind on the lower reaches.

    Third place was taken by the austrian number one bob, piloted by Perner Dellekarth. It was almost two seconds behind the Swiss.

    Zimmerer's victory has broken a run of three successive Swiss victories in the four-man event. This year he also won the title in the two-man Bobsleigh championships.
