HE FACED THE END, TURNED AROUND AND NOW DREAMS OF OLYMPIA

What an athlete story: Andreas almost faced the end in 2015. He was removed from all squads and thus lost his job. Enrolling (at the German Sport University Cologne) instead of resigning was his motto - completely on his own he had fun training again. His youth idol Tobias Angerer helped him as a mentor to get back on track, Andreas joined the Atomic Redster team and made the turnaround. At the Tour de Ski, he ran in 16th place, in the middle of the world's top. Now he's the King of Kaiserschmarrn (his secret Carb tip) and back in the German National Team. Andreas is a metal fan, which relates not only to the music. 2018 he wants to go to Olympia in Pyeongchang.
