Biography

Otto POLACSEK

Otto Polacsek’s greatest achievements were the gold medal at the 1925 European Championships and the silver medal in the following year, though with limited attendance of the dominating Norwegian skaters. In 1927, he placed 7th at the Europeans. At World Championships he finished 8th (1925) and 13th (1926 and 1928). In Austria he claimed the national championship title in 1924 and set a national record in the 5000 m in 1926. At the Deutsche Kampfspiele in 1925 (German Competitive Games), which were open to Austrians, he won the three longer distances and placed second over 500 m.

Personal Bests: 500 – 47.4 (1928); 1500 – 2:30.0 (1928); 5000 – 8:44.6 (1926); 10000 – 17:51.4 (1928).
