Silver at the Olympic Games

One World Cup podium

Two-time junior world champion

Birthday: 9/1/1999

Profession: Armed forces athlete

Club: SC Oberstdorf

Hobbies: I love going to the mountains and enjoying the peace and quiet of nature. I also spend a lot of time with my friends, who I don’t see very often in winter. I really appreciate that we don’t only talk about sports when we get together.

Role model:

When it comes to sports, definitely Eric Frenzel. I really admire how he always manages to deliver precise top performance. From a human point of view, he has stayed grounded despite his successes, and I can learn a number of things from him. Also Rafael Nadal. I admire his fierce determination and the energy he brings to every match.

I am very proud to have a cooperative partner like Viessmann at my side. Especially since they’ve been supporting me since my early years, when I was on the junior team. [...]

Julian Schmid // Nordic Combined


Julian has been on cross-country skis since early childhood. At the age of seven, he is invited to take part in ski jumping trial training and has remained true to the combination ever since. Through the DSV Schülercup, Deutschlandpokal and Alpencup, Julian continuously advances to higher competition classes. In 2018, he wins his first international medal at the Junior World Cup in Kandersteg – silver with the team. In 2017, he competes in the Continental Cup for the first time. At the 2019 Junior World Cup in Lahti, he wins gold twice – in sprint and with the team. In the same season he makes his World Cup debut. The 2021/22 season will be the most successful to date in Julian's still young career. In addition to his first podium finish in the World Cup, he takes part in the Olympic Games in Beijing and wins the silver medal in the team competition there.
