The former world-class Cross-Country skier and winner of the first Tour de Ski Tobias Angerer was named to the board of the German Ski Association. The delegates of the DSV (German Ski Association) unanimously elected the 41-year-old as vice-president. Angerer, who lives in Traunstein in Upper Bavaria, succeeds Peter Schlickenrieder, who has been working as a full-time cross-country sport director for the DSV since the spring and therefore had to retire from his honorary post in the presidium.
"With Tobias Angerer, we have found a Vice President who is not only well-versed in the world of elite sport but who devotes himself to the manifold tasks in the field of junior and mass sport with a lot of passion and know-how. Tobi has always been a very sympathetic, authentic and exemplary message for skiing, so we are very pleased that he has agreed to play an active role in the DSV board," DSV President Dr. Franz Steinle said.
"I have never been without passion for winter sports and so I look forward to working with the board and the many important projects around the development of young talent and the next big highlight, the FIS Nordic Ski World Championships 2021 in Oberstdorf. " Angerer said.
