Last Olympic Games for Prince Hubertus of Hohenlohe-Langenburg

It is not often you hear about Prince Hubertus of Hohenlohe-Langenburg (or just Hubertus von Hohenlohe if you like) in the media. Except when there is a World Championship or Winter Olympics going on. The media loves to write about the princely sporter, and easily forgets that the idea has been used over and over again. Every fourth year, or so. The weekly magazine Time is only one of many who has taken the bait.

The alpine skier, who belongs to the German princely family Hohenlohe-Langenburg, is born in Mexico and thus competes for Mexico, but also holds an Austrian passport. He took part in the Olympics in Sarajevo (1984), Calgary (1988), Albertville (1992) and Lillehammer (1994) and has participated in 11 championships. Prince Hubertus, son of Prince Alfonso of Hohenlohe-Langenburg and Princess Virginia (Ira) von Fürstenberg, is born in 1959 and says in an interview with the Swedish tabloid Expressen today that the current Olympic Games in Vancouver, Canada, will be his last. - I am getting too tired and too fat!
