Role model


I think you can learn something from many people in all kinds of areas. I think my father is particularly impressive in the way he has overcome setbacks, runs a business and the attitude with which he goes through life.

My family, my friends and my home

Viessmann has been a great supporter of winter sports for many years and we share common values. I am looking forward to the partnership and being part of the team.

Karl Geiger Ski jumper


Karl from Oberstdorf grows up with ski jumping in his hometown and is involved in the Four Hills Tournament as a helper at a young age. He soon emulated his idols and his ski jumping talent was encouraged in the ski club. In his teens he jumped off the large hill in Oberstdorf for the first time and celebrated his World Cup debut at the age of 19. After that, things went from strength to strength: Karl celebrated his first World Cup podium in 2016 in Lahti, Finland, followed by his greatest success to that point in 2018, when Karl won the silver medal with the team at the Olympic Games in PyeongChang. The following year, he celebrated his first World Cup victories and won two gold medals (team and mixed team) and silver in the individual competition from the large hill at the World Championships in Seefeld. In the 2019/20 season he shows very consistent and good performances and is rewarded with second place in the overall World Cup. At the beginning of the 2020/21 season he becomes Ski Flying World Champion in the individual, secures the Vice World Championship title with the team and shortly afterwards becomes a father. In 2021, one of the highlights of his career followed: the World Championships in his hometown Oberstdorf. There Karl was crowned the most successful ski jumper of the World Championships and won four medals, two of them in gold. At the end of this successful season he also secured the overall Ski Flying World Cup. At his second Olympic Games in Beijing, Karl is once again convincing, winning two bronze medals (individual and team) and crowning the 2021/22 season with a grandiose second place in the overall World Cup. The following season 2022/23 is marked by ups and downs, but just in time for the World Championships in Planica Karl is fit and wins bronze in the individual and gold with the mixed team.
