Raphaël Poirée visiting ANSCHÜTZ in June 2012

On June 24, 2012, 8-time Biathlon World Champion Raphaël Poirée visited ANSCHÜTZ in Ulm. Although retired, Dieter Anschütz insisted on personally welcoming and hosting this top athlete.

"Biathlon pioneer" Dieter Anschütz is still closely connected with biathlon sports. Dieter Anschütz, being president from 1968 until his retirement in 2008, was awarded in 2008 from IBU-President Anders Besseberg the VIP-Club Prize for his merits in regard to developments in biathlon and accepted as a member of the IBU VIP-Club.

Senior boss Dieter Anschütz took Raphaël Poirée on a tour through the company including test shooting range and cold chamber. International Top athletes from all over the world regularly visit the ANSCHÜTZ test shooting range, because only professional service and care will lead to perfect shooting results.

The temperature of the ANSCHÜTZ cold chamber can be lowered to -30° C. As a result, biathlon rifles for example, can be optimally prepared for training or competitions under 100% realistic conditions. Also hunting rifles are calibrated in this way for highest precision during the winter months.
