What's important to me:

Particularly in these times, the health of my family and friends is the most important thing.

Reliable partners are especially important in difficult times. I’m glad to be able to continue the long-standing cooperation with Viessmann in the years to come.

Johannes Kühn // Biathlete


Johannes first comes into contact with cross-country skiing through his parents at the age of ten. A short time later, after taking part in a trial training with Fritz Fischer in Ruhpolding, he switches to biathlon. After graduating from high school in 2010, Johannes joins the sports training group of the German Armed Forces in Bischofswiesen. One year later he switches to the Zoll Ski Team. In 2012 he makes his World Cup debut at Pokljuka and qualifies for the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang. In the following season, Johannes has a podium finish for the first time in the World Cup.
