Magnus Moan has always been a sports enthusiast and only decided to put his athletic focus on Nordic Combined when he was 16 years old. Before that, he explored all kinds of different sports like athletics and soccer in addition to ski jumping and cross-country skiing. Up until today, he is a big fan of outdoor activities like cycling, telemark skiing, golf and soccer. He also likes to go on trips into the mountains with his family, namely wife Irene and sons Henrik and Ludvig. Magnus is also passionate about motorsports. He likes cars and motorbikes, especially Harley-Davidson.
In his athletic career Magnus compiled an impressive amount of titles and can surely be called one of the current legends of the sport. In his medal collection, one can find gold, silver and bronze medals from Individual and Team events at World Championships and also a silver and a bronze medal from the 2006 Olympic Games in Torino. The season of 2013/14 proved to be a bit of a comeback season for Magnus who had suffered through some mediocre years before. Together with his strong Norwegian team, he was always among the athletes to be counted in for podiums and victories and finally crowned his season with an individual silver and a team gold medal from the Olympic Games in Sochi 2014.
