Biography

Ulrich Lind was a small-bore rifle sports shooter from West Germany. He won the silver medal in the 50 metres event at the 1976 Montréal Olympics, close behind his teammate Karlheinz Smieszek. Lind also qualified for the 1980 Moskva Games, but could not start due to the Western bloc boycott. At Los Angeles in 1984, he finished eighth, and four years later at Seoul, he disappointed by finishing 28th in the three positions event.

Lind never won a World Championship, but collected five silver and two bronze medals. In 1977, he won two gold, one silver and one bronze at the European Championships. He also won several West German national titles. Lind was awarded the Silver Bay Leaf, Germany’s highest sports award.
