Nordic world championship record holder ends his career

Three Olympic victories, seven World Championship gold medals, five overall World Cup victories in a row and winner of 54 World Cup races. This is Eric Frenzel’s impressive record.

The 34-year-old is one of the biggest legends in Nordic combined and in Nordic skiing as a whole. In 2007 he celebrated his World Cup debut, after 17 years at the highest level he says goodbye and ends his career.

“Circle has closed in Planica”

“It’s a nice moment to resign now,” Frenzel told the “FAZ”. At the World Championships in Planica he won silver in the relay – it was his 18th medal at world championships. He holds the sole record for the most men’s World Championship medals. The most successful World Cup participants>>>

“This medal was my last sporting goal. In Planica, things came full circle for me. In the end, everything worked out again. It’s good now. I don’t need any more confirmation,” explains the 34-year-old.

Up until the title fights in Planica, Frenzel was also the record world champion. Superstar Jarl Magnus Riiber stole this title from him there.

An era ends for the Germans after this season: In addition to Frenzel, Hermann Weinbuch, who was a successful national coach for 27 years, also says goodbye.
