Wolfgang PERNER biography

Wolfgang Perner starting competing in winter triathlon (running, mountain biking, cross-country skiing) while in the military, which led to his involvement in biathlon. He made the Austrian national biathlon team in 1990. Although he missed the 1992 Winter Olympics, Perner placed third that year at Holmenkollen and won his first World Cup title in Novosibirsk. During his career Perner won nine titles at the World Military Championships (CISM) and had five World Cup victories, three of them in team events. He had nine podium finishes in World Cup events, three individually.

After the 2006 Winter Olympics, Perner retired but was also involved in the scandal involving an unannounced doping raid at the Austrian biathlon quarters for the Torino Olympics. In May 2007, Perner and several teammates were excluded for life from the Olympics by the IOC, and their results in Torino were changed to a disqualification.
