At the last Nordic World Ski Championships, Markus Eisenbichler was one of the dazzling figures.

But the ski jumper is also doing very well professionally.

Siegsdorf - Markus Eisenbichler proved last winter that he is currently the most successful German ski jumper in World Cup history.

The six-time world champion is not only an important part of his team on the hill, the Siegsdorf native also bears a lot of responsibility in addition to the sport.

The 30-year-old has been employed by the Federal Police since September 2014, and the winter sports star has now announced good news.

Markus Eisenbichler: The ski jumper's plan works - Siegsdorfer secures a professional future

At the end of 2019, Eisenbichler spoke to the

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung in

detail about his job as a law enforcement officer and the corresponding future prospects. “I'm a federal police officer, and I'm very proud of that. I am grateful that I was able to do this training, ”he said at the time. He also made a telling hint, which he now seems to be following.

"If I stop ski jumping, this will also be my track," said the then 28-year-old, who seems to have found his calling.

On Wednesday, the ski jumping star posted a photo from the Federal Police Sports School in Bad Endorf on Instagram, on which he received a special certificate.

"Thank you Federal Police for a secure future, I'm happy to be part of this family," writes the three-time individual World Cup winner under the picture.

A hashtag reveals the reason for the athlete's joy: from now on he is a civil servant for life.

Markus Eisenbichler: The successful ski jumper's professional plan is working out

“I want to continue working as a federal police officer.

Ski jumping is then my hobby, ”he said in the

FAZ

interview.

Eisenbichler has now created a solid basis for his future and the time after his career.

But top-class sport is far from over, Eisenbichler presented himself too strongly in past competitions.

At the Nordic World Ski Championships in Oberstdorf, he cleared the team and mixed and won gold in each case.

With the lifelong civil servant status, Eisenbichler could gain additional self-confidence.

The World Cup starts in November with jumping in Nizhny Tagil, Russia, and the Upper Bavarian will also be there again.
