Robert Alt had his greatest success as a bobsledder in the mid-1950s. In 1955, alongside Heiri Angst, Gottfried Diener, and Franz Kapus, he won a gold medal in the four-man event at the World Championships. The quartet followed this up the following year at the 1956 Winter Olympics, where they captured gold once again in the four-man. Alt retired from active competition following the Games.
