Norbert Stolorz – a man of the Ruhr Region

“A man of the Ruhr region”: this is how Norbert Stolorz of Recklinghausen in Germany proudly presents himself. And with reason.

Anyone who is interested in international pigeon sport and doesn’t know the high quality and top performances of the German racing pigeons must have been asleep for the last couple of decades. Germany counts a lot of fanciers and therefore the competition is very strong.

And one of the regions where the competition is the toughest of all is the Ruhr area; exactly where Norbert Stolorz lives and races his birds. So of course he is proud! Because anyone who can put his mark on the racing pigeon scene in this area may call himself a true Grandmaster and surely possesses a loft full of super quality birds. This is not something that has happened overnight.

Norbert started racing pigeons in his native Poland in 1975. He was very successful at it until he moved to Germany in 1990. Unfortunately at that time his job did not enable him to continue racing and so a 16 year hiatus ensued. In 2006 however he resumed pigeon racing on his current address, once again with great success. Indeed, Norbert Stolorz certainly has left his mark on the German pigeon racing scene.

Between 2012 and 2019 he won no less than 65 1st Championships in the Union, Grand Union and on the Provincial level. Take a look at all Championship and Best Bird nominations and we’re talking about a staggering 240 top positions! Too many to list them all in this report of course, but among them we find results such as:
