Biography

Andreas Zingerle started his career in 1979. His most important individual win came in 1993, winning the 20 km at the World Championships in Borovets. In addition he also won three more gold medals and a bronze at the World Championships, all in team events – gold in the 1990 and 1993 relay, and the 1994 team event, adding a relay bronze in 1986. Zingerle participated in four Winter Olympics, winning a 1988 relay bronze. He made 10 podiums in his World Cup career in individual races and another five in the relay. His only individual win came in the 20 km event in 1993, but he had two relay wins and one in the team event, and he ranked third in the overall World Cup standings in 1990-91, also adding four seconds and two third places in other years.

After retiring from racing Zingerle became a coach for the Italian national team, initially responsible for the juniors and later for the men’s A team. He later lived with his wife in his native Anterselva (Antholz) where he worked as a trained policeman (carabinieri).
