Wolfgang TROSSBACH

Hurdler Wolfgang Troßbach took part in the 1952 Helsinki Olympics in the 110 hurdles but did not qualify for the semifinals. From 1951-53 he was West German Champion. From 1990-95 he was president of the Association of Former Athletes. His father Heiner Troßbach was also a hurdler and later became a respected sports journalist and chief editor of the magazine _Der Leichtathlet” (The Athlete). He was responsible for creating the nickname “Otto, der Seltsame” (Otto, the Strange) for Otto Peltzer.
