Alpine speed specialist Hansjörg Tauscher participated in three consecutive Winter Olympics, representing West Germany at Calgary in 1988, and Unified Germany at Albertville in 1992 and Lillehammer in 1994. His best result was a seventh place in the downhill event at Albertville in 1992.

In 1989 at Vail, Tauscher enjoyed his greatest skiing moment when winning the downhill at the World Championships. He was not one of the fancied competitors, so his win was totally surprising. He was subsequently awarded the Silver Bay Leaf, Germany’s highest sports award. Tauscher won his only two national titles in 1991 (super G) and 1992 (downhill). He later became a policeman.
