Biography

Robert Van Zeebroeck is the most successful Belgian singles figure skater. He achieved his best result, a 3rd place behind established champions Gillis Grafström and Willy Böckl, at the 1928 Winter Olympics. He had never approached that level at other international championships, his previous best being a 6th place at the 1926 European Championships. After a long hiatus, Van Zeebroeck appeared again in the 1930s. He missed the Berlin Olympics, but placed 9th in the 1938 Worlds.
