Axel Teichmann (born July 14, 1979 in Ebersdorf, today Saalburg-Ebersdorf, Thuringia) is a retired German cross-country skier.

Background

Teichmann started cross-country skiing at the age of ten. He completed his secondary education at Bad Lobenstein and, from 1993, at Oberhof. Since graduation in 1998, he has been aided in his sporting career by the German armed forces as a military athlete. In addition to professional sport, Teichmann studies electrical engineering at FernUniversität Hagen.

Career

Teichmann was sick for a large part of the 2005/06 season and failed to compete in the 2006 Winter Olympics, and due to the Germans selection criteria of either an Olympic medal or a top 10 finish in the World Cup, Teichmann, who won the overall World Cup in 2004/05 has resulted in him being left out of the German A-team for the 2006/07 season. Teichmann will still be able to compete, only he will receive less financing and will not train with the other elite members.[1]

In June 2006 Teichmann had leg surgery for an injury he had, but he was given a modified wheelchair while he recovered. The wheelchair was made with rollerskis, so that he could still train.[2]

He won silver with Tim Tscharnke in the Team Sprint at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.

After the 50 km freestyle race at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, he announced his immediate retirement from the sport.
