Denise Herrmann-Wick34, says on his Instagram account that he is ending his sports career.

Herrmann-Wick originally competed in cross-country skiing, where she reached the podium six times in the World Cup and won one relay medal in the Olympics, but the woman had her greatest success in biathlon, which began in 2016.

After changing disciplines, Herrmann-Wick became an Olympic champion and a two-time world champion. The German celebrated his Olympic victory over the normal distance in Beijing. The world championships came in 2019 in Östersund in the pursuit and this year in front of the home crowd in the sprint race in Oberhof, where the trophy cabinet was also completed with the World Cup silver medals in the pursuit and the relay.

Herrmann-Wick has a total of 11 biathlon competition medals.

Last week in Östersund, Sweden, the German finished third in the 15 km race.
