The 28-year-old topped the podium along with Martin Grothkopp, Candy Bauer and Margis Thorsten as they led the way in a German clean sweep on the 1988 Olympic track.

Friedrich and his team-mates enjoyed a 0.19 second advantage over Nico Walther's outfit in second, with the German joined by Paul Krenz, Alexander Roediger and Eric Franke.

Latvia's Oskars Kibermanis, who placed fourth in Calgary with Matiss Miknis, Arvis Vilkaste and Strenga Janis, finished in second with 1,616 points while Lochner took third with 1,605.
