Austrian medals became a tradition at world championships in Innsbruck-Igls. Markus Prock in the men’s luge and Tobias and Markus Schiegl in the double luge became both world champions and vice world champions at their home track between 1987 and 2007 and additionally became world champions in Altenberg in 1996. Furthermore, Markus Prock won the overall world cup for astonishing ten times, which is an unbroken record shared only with the Italian Armin Zöggeler. The successful brothers Andreas and Wolfgang Linger didn’t become world champions on their home track, but they won three gold medals in other world championships plus two gold medals and one silver medal at Olympic Games. With this unbelievable series between 2003 and 2010, the Linger brothers belong to the most successful lugers in history.
