That was a beautiful day when you look at the faces.
Marco Groß, son of the German biathlon legend Ricco, married Lena Häcki.
Ruhpolding - Marco Groß will not forget the year 2022 in a hurry.
At the beginning of the year, the son of Olympic champion Ricco celebrated his World Cup debut in Antholz.
At the race in South Tyrol, Groß celebrated his debut in the individual over 20 kilometers.
In the end it was rank 65, with three shooting errors.
There is still a long way to go to follow in his father's footsteps, but the first steps have already been taken.

And at the beginning of June he already provided the next highlight of the year, if not the biggest highlight.
He married his girlfriend Lena Häcki (both born in 1995) in Engelberg.
That says something to biathlon fans, doesn't it?
The Swiss is also on the trail.
Häcki has already had a few more successes in life.
She made her debut in the Biathlon World Cup in the winter of 2014/2015 at the age of 19.
She has even been on the podium four times in the relay, but she also made it to third place in the pursuit.
Now she has given her Marco the yes word.
And a few weeks after the civil wedding, a big party was celebrated with friends.
When the weather was nice, the bridal couple celebrated together with the German Olympic champion Denise Herrmann, who also posted pictures of the celebration on her Instagram account.

The proud father, with slightly gray hair, also wished his son and his wife good luck.
