Biography

Max Raub was one of Austria’s most prominent kaykers of the 1950s. He won his first international medals at the 1950 World Championships, taking bronze in both the K-2 500, with longtime partner Herbert Wiedermann, and the K-1 4x500 with Wiederman, Herbert Klepp, and non-Olympian Günther Rührnschop. He then made his Olympic début at the 1952 Helsinki Games, where he and Wiedermann took bronze in the K-2 1000 and just missed the podium in fourth in the K-2 10,000. The duo had their greatest moment at the 1954 World Championships, where they took gold in the K-2 10000, and where they also captured bronze in the K-1 4x500, alongside Alfred Schmidtberger and Hermann Salzner. Raub and Wiedermann returned to the Olympics in 1956 and defended their bronze medal in the K-2 1000.
