Biography

Jens Filbrich was a sport soldier at the German Bundeswehr and the son of former cross-country skier and current biathlon coach Wolfgang Filbrich and former Olympic bronze medal winner Sigrun Krause. His brother Raik was active in Nordic combined and his wife Janet Klein was a biathlete. Filbrich had his biggest moments mainly in the relay, winning silver medals at the 2006 Winter Olympics, the 2003, 2005, and 2009 World Championships, along with bronze medals at the 2002 Winter Olympics and the 2001 World Championships. He also earned World Championships silver in the team sprint in 2005 and a bronze in the 50 km in 2007. At Vancouver he earned a sixth place in the pursuit after supporting Tobias Angerer for most of the race, helping him win the silver medal.
