Erfurt (RWH) Bernhard Germeshausen, who became World Champion as a bobsleigh brakeman as well as a pilot, celebrates his 70th birthday on August 21. As brakeman of pilot Meinhard Nehmer he was decorated three times with Olympic gold (1976 in 2-man Bobsleigh, 1980 in 4-man Bobsleigh) and won four World Championship titles.
