Simon Schempp has been at the top or close to the top man on the German men’s team since the 2014-15 seasons; he has finished fourth in the World Cup Total Score twice. He has  collected 12  individual victories, 12 second places and two third  places in World cup competitions. He won five medals over three seasons at the IBU YJWCH, competing against his peers that include Martin Fourcade and Tarjei Boe, who like Schempp were born in 1988. Schempp’s development was a bit slower than his rivals, as he has struggled with illness at times. However he caught up rapidly after his first World Cup victory, a tie with Lukas Hofer in the 2014 Antholz sprint. In 2016, he won the Antholz sprint for the third time in a row, admitting, “I really like this place.” Schempp has competed in three Olympic Winter Games, winning a relay Silver medal at Sochi in 2014, a mass start Silver and relay Bronze in the 2018 OWG in Pyeongchang.  Beyond those accolades, his 2017 IBU mass start World Championship title is his career highlight. Schempp lives and trains in Ruhpolding, where he can be found cycling, running on the mountain trails or motorcycle riding in his leisure time.
