Rolf Fuchs was an East German luger who competed in the mid 1960s.
He won the bronze medal in the men's doubles event at the 1965 FIL
World Luge Championships in Davos, Switzerland. A Luge (play / lu
/) is a small one- or two-person sled on which one sleds supine
(face up) and feet-first. Steering is done by flexing the sled's
runners with the calf of each leg or exerting opposite shoulder
pressure to the seat.Lugers can reach speeds of 140 km per hour,
and the Guinness World Record is held by Tony Benshoof of the
United States at a speed of 139.9 km per hour although some
athletes, including Sam Edney of Canada and Felix Loch of Germany
have reached speeds exceeding 150 km per hour (95.68 mph) on the
track in Whistler, Canada.
