Your Oberhof

I lived in Oberhof for over 15 years, went to school there and then competed in my entire competitive sports career from here. The Thuringian Forest, the Rennsteig, the ski jumping facilities, indoor skiing and cross-country skiing trails were my home during this time.


What was your sporting career like?

I started Nordic combined at the age of six at SC Motor Zella Mehlis. Between 1996 and 2004, I attended the sports high school in Oberhof and also passed my Abitur there. During this time, I won 8 medals at Junior World Championships (3x gold, 4x silver, 1x bronze) and my first World Cup appearances. After that, I joined the Bundeswehr's sports support group and moved into a room in the barracks at Grenzadler. I participated in six World Championships, two Olympic Games and over 200 World Cups between 2005 and 2015.

Who are your role models?

During my youth and junior years, I was lucky enough to be able to train in a training group with numerous established athletes. These included Ronny Ackermann, Marko Baacke, Sebastian Haseney, Marcel Höhlig and Stephan Münchmeyer.

What was the most emotional moment of your sporting career?

That was the moment after the last jump at the World Championships in the mass start in Liberec 2009. After the jump I knew that I was at least second. To end the competition with the jump was and is rather unusual for a Nordic combined athlete and without the immediate strong physical exhaustion of cross-country skiing, the emotions had free rein.

What was the biggest sporting disappointment for you?

After a successful individual competition at the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi, I didn't manage the internal qualification for the team competition. The two training jumps that were decisive for this went somewhat to shit. Disappointments are part of sport, but this one hit me hard.

What are your goals for the future?

I want to become a teacher at a secondary school in the subjects of sport and music.

... because he grew up here and the tradition that Nordic skiing has is felt here in many places and by everyone.
