Sebastian Huber, an educated merchant, was German Champion in 1930 with the two-man bob and in 1931 with the four-man bob. He was World Champion in 1931 with the two-man with Hanns Kilian and in 1934 with the four-man. He also won a bronze medal in the five-man bob at the 1928 Winter Olympics at St. Moritz together with Hanns Kilian, Valentin Krempl, Hans Heß and Hans Nägle. Huber claimed a bronze medal in the four-man at the 1932 Winter Olympics together with Kilian, MaxLudwig and Hans Mehlhorn. With Kilian he also placed fifth in the two-man bob. He and Kilian competed again at the 1936 Winter Olympics, where they were the crowd favorite, but due to bad weather conditions they placed seventh in the four-man bob with Fritz Schwartz and Hermann von Valta.
