He finished in 22nd place in the 5000 m at the 2010 Winter Olympics. He missed one race because he turned off his mobile phone – he was a fourth alternate for that race and neither he nor the German team manager thought he would be selected. The Olympic organizers tried to call him after a skater withdrew one hour before the race, and they failed to reach the three other alternates.
