In addition, they won eleven medals at the FIL World Luge Championships with seven golds (Men's doubles: 1989, 1991, 1993, 1995; Mixed team: 1991, 1993, 1995) and four silvers (Men's doubles: 1997, Mixed team: 1989, 1996, 1997). At the FIL European Luge Championships, they won a total of five medals with three golds (Men's doubles: 1996, 1998; Mixed team: 1998) and two bronzes (Men's doubles: 1990, 1992).[1]
