Both boats missed the final and won the B-finals. The coxed pairs were also the 1964 European Champions, adding a silver medal in 1967. They also won East German titles from 1963-65. Bergau and Gorny had already won the title with non-Olympian Bernd Giza in 1962, and both also claimed one more national championship in 1965 with the coxed fours.
