Biography

Felix Neureuther ([ˈfeːlɪks ˈnɔʏʁɔʏtɐ]; born 26 March 1984) is a German retired World Cup alpine ski racer.

Career

Born in Munich-Pasing, Neureuther was raised in Garmisch-Partenkirchen in Bavaria and is a member of the German national ski team. He has competed in nine World Championships and three Winter Olympics. Neureuther won a silver medal in the slalom at the 2013 World Championships and added a bronze medal in the team event. Previously, he had won a gold medal in the team event in 2005. He won bronze medals in slalom in 2015 and 2017.

Neureuther won his first World Cup race in 2010, in a slalom at Kitzbühel, Austria. He won his only giant slalom in January 2014 at Adelboden, Switzerland, which was only the second victory by a German male in a World Cup giant slalom; Max Rieger won the first in March 1973, nearly 41 years earlier in Quebec.

Through January 2019, Neureuther has thirteen World Cup victories and 47 podiums, making him Germany's most successful male World Cup skier. In March 2019 he announced his retirement from competition ahead of his final race, a slalom at the World Cup finals in Soldeu, Andorra.

Personal

Neureuther's parents are both former World Cup ski racers, members of the West German team in the 1970s. His father is Christian Neureuther, winner of six World Cup slaloms, and his mother is Rosi Mittermaier, a World, Olympic, and World Cup champion, all in 1976. At the 1976 Winter Olympics, she won medals in all three alpine events, two golds and a silver. Since 2013 he has been in a relationship with biathlete Miriam Gössner: in October 2017 she gave birth to the couple's first child, a girl named Matilda.

One of Neureuther's childhood friends was footballer Bastian Schweinsteiger: he presented Schweinsteiger with the "Special jury award" at the 2016 Bambi Awards.
