The German pair of Tobias Wendl and Tobias Arlt were both reigning Olympic champions from Sochi 2014 and winners of all the World Championships between 2013 and 2016. At the 2017 World Championship in Igls they were defeated by their countrymen Sascha Benecken and Toni Eggert. Benecken and Eggert also won the European Championship in Sigulda three weeks before the Olympics ahead of the Šics-brothers from Latvia and Wendl and Arlt.

In PyeongChang the two Tobias’es had the best time in both runs and defended their gold medal easily. Austrians Peter Penz and Georg Fischler took silver, repeating their performance at the 2015 World Championship. Benecken and Eggert won their first Olympic medal but were disappointed with their bronze.
