Hussing won four medals at the European championships in 1969–1979, missing the 1977 tournament again due to a boycott. Domestically he won a record of 16 titles in 1969–83 and 1985. He held a degree in architecture from the University of Siegen, and in retirement worked as a construction manager in his hometown of Brachbach.[1]
