Stefano Ticci took part in four Winter Olympics, in 1984 with pilot Marco Bellodis and in 1988 with pilot Ivo Ferriano. After competing for two years with Roberto D'Amico, success came when he teamed up with Günther Huber ultimately winning the bronze medal in the two-man bob at the 1994 Olympic Winter Games in Lillehammer, his last Olympics. In the same year he was European Champion in the four-man, after previously winning one bronze and silver medal each in the two-man with Huber. At home, he won three Italian Championships in the two-man bob with Ferriano in 1988 and in 1990-91 with D’Amico. Ticci was honored by his home province Lucca for his sports achievements. He later became a policeman.
