What's important to me:

I am very concerned about the protection of animals. I also try to be as environmentally conscious as possible and reduce my ecological footprint. I am, of course, also absolutely devoted to my family.

Viessmann has supported me since my childhood. From when I was in a ski club to the junior team to individual sponsoring. Continuing this cooperation means a lot to me.

Maren Hammerschmidt // Biathlete


At the age of six, Maren starts biathlon sports together with her twin sister Janin. In 2007, she makes her international debut at the European Youth Olympic Festival and wins bronze in pursuit. After graduating from school a year later, she joins the Zoll Ski Team. In 2012, Maren competes for the first time in the World Cup in Khanty-Mansiysk and ranks 34th. In 2015, she secures her first podium place at the World Cup in the single mixed relay with Daniel Böhm in Östersund. In the 2016/17 season, she celebrates her first World Cup victory at the relay competition in Pokljuka. In the same season, Maren becomes world champion with the relay team at the World Cup in Hochfilzen. In 2018, another highlight of her career follows: she participates in the Olympic Games in PyeongChang. Shortly afterwards, however, she injured her ankle. After her injury break, Maren starts in the IBU Cup for the time being, but fights her way back into the World Cup team and competes at the World Championships in Pokljuka. Maren ends her career in March 2022.
