Biography

German cyclist Hans Bernhardt came fourth in the men’s track sprint at Amsterdam in 1928, having lost the race for third place against Denmark’s Willy Falck Hansen. With team-mate Karl Köther, however, Bernhardt won the bronze medal in the tandem sprint. The same year Bernhardt won his only National title in the 1,000 metres time-trial. During World War II he was killed in action in 1940 in Amsterdam, the scene of his Olympic success, and was buried in Ysselsteyn.
