Roman Rees // Biathlete


At the age of seven, Roman begins parallel training in both cross-country skiing and biathlon with SV Schauinsland. In 2008 he wins the overall ranking of the DSV Schülercup and moves to the ski boarding school in Furtwangen. Three years later he gains his first international experience at the European Youth Olympic Festival in Liberec. Roman competes regularly in the IBU Cup beginning in 2017, the same year that he makes his first World Cup appearance in Finland and achieves a podium finish together with Laura Dahlmeier in the single mixed relay. At the 2019 World Cup in Östersund, Roman secures the silver medal with the German men’s relay team. In the 2019/20 season Roman has several starts in the World Cup. A year later he is a permanent member of the World Cup team and achieves his best individual result with a tenth place at the 2021 World Championships on the Pokljuka. The following season continues to go well with the highlight being the qualification for the Olympic Games in Beijing. There Roman convinces with three top 10 results.
