What's important to me:

It’s important to me to stay healthy so I can enjoy the biathlon for as long as possible.

I’m grateful for the opportunity and for Viessmann’s trust in me, and I’m looking forward to the coming years together.

Danilo Riethmüller // Biathlete


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.
