Biography

Josef Fendt (born 6 October 1947) is the current president of the Fédération Internationale de Luge de Course (FIL). He was a West German-German luger who competed from the mid-1960s to the mid-1970s. Competing in two Winter Olympics, he won the silver medal in the men's singles event at Innsbruck in 1976.

Fendt also won two gold medals in the men's singles event at the FIL World Luge Championships, earning them in 1970 and 1974. Additionally, he won a silver medal in the men's singles event at the 1973 FIL European Luge Championships in Königssee, West Germany.

After his retirement from competitive luge, Fendt got active in the International Luge Federation (FIL), being named Vice-President Sport for Artificial Track in 1985, a position he stayed at until the death of FIL's first president Bert Isatitsch in February 1994. Fendt was appointed acting president of the FIL as a result, then elected full president in June of that year.

Fendt's sister, Andrea, won the silver medal in the women's singles event at the 1978 FIL World Luge Championships in Imst, Austria.

On Fendt's 61st birthday in Munich, he received the Bundesverdienstkreuz Verdienstkreuz am Bande (Cross of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany) for his contributions toward society, mainly in luge.
