TUM Student Wins World Championship Bobsled Silver

Johannes Lochner, a student at the TUM(Technische Universität München) Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, has taken the silver medal in the two-man bobsled race at the world championship in Igls, Austria. Together with his brakeman, Joshua Bluhm, the 25-year-old finished in second place at the championship yesterday – mere 17 hundredths of a second behind the winners.

This is the second year in a row that Johannes Lochner has claimed second place in the world championships – he won the silver medal in 2015, his first year as a professional bobsled pilot. Lochner now has his sights firmly set on the 2018 Winter Olympics. He is studying for a master’s degree in electrical and computer engineering.
