What’s important to me:

First of all, family. Everything else is way behind family.

Viessmann has been supporting me for more than ten years now, and I am thankful to have such a reliable, down-to-earth, innovative partner.

Arnd Peiffer // Biathlete


Arnd starts with the biathlon at the age of nine because the state training center is not far from where he lives. In 2009 he makes his World Cup debut in Oberhof, since then mostly running among the top 15 in the overall rankings. In just his second World Cup season, Arnd becomes world champion with the mixed relay team in Khanty-Mansiysk. In the following years he repeatedly wins titles or medals at World Cups. He celebrates his greatest success to date at the 2018 Olympic Games in Pyeongchang with gold in sprint. After another World Championship silver medal and another very successful season, it's over after the winter 2020/21 and Arnd announces his retirement from the sport.
