Benedikt Doll surprised the biathlon world with a gold medal ahead of JT Boe and Martin Fourcade in the sprint at the IBU World Championships 2017 in Hochfilzen. He also has two silver medals and one bronze medal in the men’s relay as well as one silver in the mixed relay in his World Championship collection. Benedikt is also the winner of bronze medals in the pursuit and in the men’s relay at the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games, which were his first Olympic Games. He has two wins and 11 podiums altogether (six of them in the sprint) at the BMW IBU World Cup level. He has finished in the Top 10 in the Total Score standings three times so far: he came in seventh in the 2018/2019 season, eighth in the 2015/2016 season and ninth in the 2017/2018 season. He studies industrial engineering with a focus on marketing and sales at Furtwangen University of Applied Science in Germany.
Beni is known for his very down-to-earth personality, for his unusual but very fast skiing technique and for his passion for cooking: time permitting, he joins his father Charly in the kitchen of their family-run hotel “Sonnenhof” in Hinterzarten in Schwarzwald, Germany.
