Vanessa Voigt // Biathlete


At eight years old, Vanessa and her twin brother, Kevin, start cross-country skiing. In 2010, she transfers to the skiing high school in Oberhof to take advantage of the better training conditions. Because it has been her childhood dream to become a biathlete, she soon takes her first shots with a biathlon rifle and feels immediately comfortable. She soon becomes successful, winning the German Cup in her age group during the 2015/16 season. The following year, she has her first race in the IBU Junior Cup and also climbs the podium for the first time. At the 2017 Junior World Championships in Brezno-Osrblie, she wins the silver medal with the relay team. In the 2020/21 season Vanessa wins the IBU Cup overall ranking and also celebrates her World Cup debut. Only one year later she becomes the high-flyer in the German team. Vanessa shows consistently good performances, sensationally finishes second in the Otepää sprint and crowns her season with relay bronze at the Olympic Games in Beijing.
