  • In his long career, Björn Kircheisen has collected up an impressive amount of medals and titles. Starting as a very successful junior, Kircheisen managed to win six gold medals at Junior World Championships in the course of three years, a feat that no other junior was able to achieve after him.

    At major events like Olympic Games and World Championships in the course of his carreer as a senior, he has a tendency to show equally impressive performances but ending up with a silver medal instead of the gold, which is why his teammates nicknamed him "Silbereisen".

    In the winter of 2016/17, the by then 33-year-old Kircheisen experienced a "renaissance" as a part of the almost unbeatable German team. Not only did Kircheisen win his 17th World Cup (out of 261 starts) and stood on the podium twice more but together with the German team, he finally won the coveted gold medal at the World Championships in Lahti. Kircheisen completed his fable week with an individual bronze medal in the normal hill event.

    In his free time, Kircheisen likes to play soccer, ride a motorcycle, work on the computer and spend time with his dog Kalle, a Bolonka Zwetna. The policeman from Johanngeorgenstadt, Germany, characterizes himself as ambitious and optimistic but still likes to "Take it easy and keep cool" as his life motto says.
