Danilo becomes a member of the Hasselfelde ski club at just six years old. Though he’s a keen mountain biker early on, in winter he’s frequently out on his skis. Danilo has contact with the biathletes at Sonnenberg through his regular training and soon takes part in a trial training session. In 2011 he joins WSV Clausthal-Zellerfeld and moves into the adjoining ski academy. Shortly afterwards, he is a fixture at international competitions and at the Junior World Championships, where he performs well and begins collecting medals. In 2020 he becomes the junior world champion in Lenzerheide. A year later, he takes part in the European Championships in Duszniki-Zdroj and finishes in the top 15 in the sprint race.
