Oliver Anthofer – living life to the full!

Despite a motorcycle accident, which left him paralysed, Oliver Anthofer had an extraordinary career as a top athlete and now enjoys a perfectly happy family life and an extremely active lifestyle.

A motorcycle accident changed Oliver Anthofer’s life forever twenty-three years ago. The initial feelings of despair experienced by the twenty-year-old, when faced with spending the rest of his life in a wheelchair, were soon replaced by a new positive outlook on life that has resulted in his extraordinary sporting successes in cross-country skiing, biathlon and relay. Winning nine medals in five Paralympics and eight world titles speaks volumes about the man.

I wonder how Oliver is after his first year as a married man and decide to ring him up and see what he’s up to these days. My curiosity pays off: Oliver proudly announces that he and his wife have just had their first child. This is great news and something that should be reported on the küschall® website. I suggest we meet for a face-to-face interview.
