He already won with the team at the 2006 FEI World Equestrian Games in Aachen, Germany. At the 2004 Summer Olympics he made the 4th place in team eventing and the 5th place in individual eventing.

He came out in first place after a stellar performance in the Cross-Country phase, and maintained his position with fast, clear jumping rounds, and took home the Olympic Gold Medal in both Team and Individual Eventing for Germany.

He is working as a dentist in Rendsburg and lives with his wife in Nübbel, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.
