Tobogganing: Comeback: Record world champion Eggert wants to know it again

Toboggan record world champion Toni Eggert returns to the ice track. In the new season, the 35-year-old double-seater specialist will compete in the double-seater together with 22-year-old Florian Müller from Oberwiesenthal.

The luger, who competes for the BRC Ilsenburg from Saxony-Anhalt, resigned six months ago and is currently working as a coach for the USA luge team.

“We have to learn to toboggan and start together,” Eggert told the ARD Sportschau. The second goal is the starting place in the World Cup. “If we do our job well, it is realistic that we can make it,” Eggert continued. Three German doubles are eligible to compete in the World Cup. The portal insüdthüringen.de also reported on the comeback plans.

Together with his partner Sascha Benecken, Eggert won a total of ten world titles in doubles. The duo announced the end of their careers last August. Eggert and Benecken achieved a record number of 54 victories and 106 podium places in the World Cup. They also won the overall World Cup six times.
