Berni Gruber has two passions: Nordic Combined and rock music. Before he decided to commit to pursuing an athletic carreer and attending the Ski Gymnasium in Stams, Austria, he even went to a music school. Although Gruber has been a fixture in the Nordic Combined World Cup since 1998, he always finds time and opportunity to make music part of his life, too.
Together with his Nordic Combined fellow athletes Tino Edelmann, Ronny Heer and Christoph Menz, guitar player Gruber founded a band called the "Telemarkers" in 2009 and recorded a song called "Für den einen Moment" ("For that one moment") which was meant as an anthem for the sport of Nordic Combined.
With four Olympic, six World Championship medals and four World Cup victories in 162 World Cup starts, Gruber definitely had a great career something to show for after the season 2013/14 but his biggest moment was still to come in the following winter of 2014/15. As the first Austrian in the history of the sport, Gruber won gold at the World Championships in Falun and also upped his World Cup victory count to five.
