He competed for the United Team of Germany at the 1960 Summer Olympics in the 400 metres and won the silver. The finish line picture of Kaufmann's desperate lunge to try to capture the gold has been shown in many track and field publications. Both Kaufmann and Davis set a new world record time at 44.9 s and became the first athletes to run the 400 m with 45 seconds. Kaufmann then joined team mates Joachim Reske, Manfred Kinder and Johannes Kaiser in the 4×400 m relay, where they won the silver medal. After retiring from competitions Kaufmann was running an amateur theatre in Karlsruhe, where he died aged 72.
