HIS FATHER WAS OLYMPIAN IN LOS ANGELES - NIKLAS INHERITED THE ATHLETE GENE
For a young athlete he is surprisingly far - and amazingly cool. And therefore Niklas is helping the entire world cross-country skiing. He inherited the athletes gene from his father who was a modern pentathlete Olympian in Los Angeles in 1984. "I am fascinated by the performance of the human body." He calls it a source of motivation. Rarely will you find a better one. He lives and sets "as much quality in every training session." He wanted to become a cross-country skier at home in Ramsau am Dachstein since the Nordic World Championships in 1999. "My Hero was the Norwegian Frode Estil." His way has a clear objective: in 2019 the Nordic World Championships will return to Seefeld in Austria. And then he wants to belong to the heroes.
