Wedding: A biathlon ace has butterflies in his stomach

For many biathletes, the summer break is not just a good opportunity to recharge their batteries while on vacation. For some people it is also the chance to celebrate the most beautiful day of their lives.

In May 2022, top Austrian biathlete Felix Leitner gathered all his courage while on vacation in Tenerife and asked for the hand of his long-time girlfriend Anna-Maria Schreder. The two have been a couple since school, and now Anna-Maria – who also used to be a biathlete – answered the big question with “yes”. Almost exactly a year later, the big day took place: the two got married. It was a wedding in pure biathlon style.

As is customary in North Tyrol (and also in South Tyrol), various serenades are held after the wedding. Of course, Felix Leitner also had to present his biathlon skills and demonstrate his shooting skills in a flashy outfit. So an all-round successful day. “Mrs. and Mr. Leitner,” the newlywed Anna-Maria later wrote on social media.

While Mrs. Leitner, as already mentioned, is already retired from biathlon, 26-year-old Mr. Leitner wants to get started again. Things didn't necessarily go as planned for Felix Leitner last season. But he has proven many times in the past that he has what it takes. The North Tyrolean has already reached the World Cup podium once and made it into the top 10 numerous times.
