Double Olympic champion, Nutrition expert, Ex-cross-country skier, Ex-biathlete

Double Olympic champion Evi Sachenbacher-Stehle is one of Germany’s most successful cross-country skiers.

At the 2002 Winter Olympics, the Traunstein native won the gold medal in the relay and the silver medal in the sprint, for which she was awarded the “Silver Laurel Leaf” by German President Johannes Rau. In addition to winning the 4 x 5 KM relay at the 2003 World Championships, she won four more silver medals at the 2003, 2007 and 2009 World Championships and the 2006 Winter Olympics.

At the 2010 Olympics, she won the team sprint together with Claudia Nystad and took silver with the relay team. In 2012, Evi then switched to the biathlon. Already in March 2013, she celebrated her first World Cup victory in her first relay event. At the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, traces of methylhexanamine were found in Evi’s urine. Although the likeable athlete repeatedly protested her innocence, the International Court of Justice for Sport banned her for six months. The subsequent official investigation by the public prosecutor’s office confirmed Evi Sachenbacher’s statement. The reason for the positive doping test was contaminated nutritional supplements, after which the manufacturer of the supplements had to pay damages.

Evi Sachenbacher-Stehle was acquitted of the charge of doping. Evi then ended her active career and has since lived with her husband, former alpine ski racer Johannes Stehle, and their two children in Fischen in the Allgäu region. A short time later, she earned her bachelor’s degree in nutritional counseling.
