Markus Eisenbichler // Ski jumper


At the age of seven, Markus develops an interest in ski jumping and begins training at TSV Siegsdorf. In 2011, he joins the DSV Continental Cup team, becoming a permanent member of the World Cup team beginning in 2013/14. In 2017, Markus wins the bronze medal in individual and becomes world champion in mixed team competition at the World Cup in Lahti. Two years later, Markus becomes triple world champion at the World Cup in Seefeld and achieves his first World Cup victory in ski flying in Planica. In the 2020/21 season, Markus starts as a “high-flyer”; on the first two World Cup weekends he takes first and second, respectively. At the highlight of the season, the World Championships in Oberstdorf, he wins gold medals number five and six in the men's team event and with the mixed team. Just one year later, Markus finally fulfills his dream of an Olympic medal. He wins the bronze medal in the team event at the Beijing Games. In addition, he becomes vice world champion in the team at the Ski Flying World Championships in Vikersund this season.
