Sven Grossegger is the son of legendary former world-class biathlete, Andrea Grossegger. Nowadays, Andrea, together with her husband Reinhard Grossegger, co-runs Austria’s most successful biathlon club, the HSV Saalfelden. Sven has followed in his mother’s footsteps and, with such close links to the club, he has some of the world’s best biathlon training available on his doorstep.
Sven started entering junior championship events in 2004 and it quickly became clear that he was a chip off the block. Over the years, Sven has gone from strength to strength, eager to live up to the family name every step of the way. It's safe to say he will keep the Grossegger family flame burning and will no doubt carry it through to the next generation.
When he's not training or competing, Sven by no means relaxes. He prefers to spend his time enjoying a host of other sports, including volleyball, football and motorsports.Read more
