Biography

Richard RÖSTEL

Only a few details of Richard Röstel’s life are known. He is known to have been alive in 1936, attending the 1936 Olympics as a guest of honor, and celebrating his 50th year of membership with the Berlin Turngemeinde. His exact results at the 1896 Athens Olympics are not known, but he was unplaced in individual events. Together with the German team he won two gold medals. After their return home, most team participants were excluded from the reactionary German Gymnastics Association as they were “involved in a sporting event dedicated to internationalism." The winning teams were banned from national competitions in Berlin.
