Biografia

Natalie Geisenberger made history at Beijing 2022, becoming the first luger to win double gold at three consecutive Olympic Games. She also became the sport's most decorated Olympian with seven medals - six golds and one bronze - at four Games.

Born in Munich, Geisenberger grew up 50 kilometres away in the Bavarian mountain town of Miesbach, which boasts a summer luge track. A member of the local luge club from the age of 10, she went on to win 14 Junior World Cup events, three overall Junior World Cup titles and six Junior World Championship crowns between 2004 and 2007: three in the singles and three in the team event.

On moving up to the senior tour, she became European singles champion in 2008 in Cesana Pariol (ITA), where she also won an U-23 world title three years later.

Her first World Cup win came in the 2008/09 season, when she was second in the overall standings behind Tatjana Hüfner. That season, the day after her 21st birthday, she also took silver at the World Championships - where two-time reigning champion Hüfner came a disappointing sixth - and helped Germany to mixed team relay gold.
