René Sommerfeldt | Over all world cup winner 2003/04

"Here in Oberwiesenthal, we have almost ideal training conditions in both summer and winter. The roller skiing trail is one of the most varied and challenging that I know. The climate and geography are also suitable for endurance training courses. Preparations for the World Junior Championships 2020 enabled the training facilities to be further improved with a new network of cross-country trails, artificial snow systems and expanded ski waxing facilities."

A Cross-Country Skiing and biathlon stadium was constructed on the Fichtelberg between 1974 and 1987. The Sparkassen-Skiarena was opened in 2006. The biathlon shooting range was completed one year earlier. In preparation for the Junior World Championships, 2020/21 sees the restructuring of the ski stadium and the relocation and expansion of the biathlon shooting range.
