Biografia

The best Nordic combined specialist the world has seen this decade, Eric Frenzel has a record five consecutive overall World Cup wins. Between Sochi 2014 and PyeongChang 2018, he succeeded in keeping his title in the normal hill, and climbed to the very top of the Olympic records table with six medals, including three golds.

 An early start

"Jump far, ski fast" has been Eric Frenzel's motto from a very young age. His father, a Nordic combined coach, first put him on skis at the age of two, and at the top of a ski jump at age six. "He got me interested in this magnificent sport," Eric said. Junior world champion in the sprint in Tarvisio (Italy) in March 2007, he joined the FIS World Cup circuit aged 19 in the same year. But he would have to be patient and perfect his talent before reaching the top. As a young father to his son Philip, he participated in his first Winter Games in Vancouver in 2010, returning home from the ski jump and piste of Whistler with a bronze team medal won with Johannes Rydzek, Tino Edelmann and Björn Kircheisen, behind the USA (silver) and Austria (gold).
