Research area: Training science

Training Centre located at the Campus Sport. He is responsible for the fitness training, performance diagnostics, consultation and supervision of about 80 elite and junior athletes in various sports. His staff consists of an interdisciplinary team of about 15 experts (see homepage Olympiazentrum). Working together different sports federations for the past 25 years, most of his scientific work aimed to analyse and optimise performance for elite and junior athletes, including talent development and injury prevention. His research work as first author or as co-author (project manager) has received several national and international awards. He has given numerous lectures at national and international conferences, advisory boards and specialist seminars. As an engineer, one of his interests is also the development of training and test equipment. He was or is a consultant in training science issues in elite sports such as ski racing, Formula 1, tennis, luge, and many more. Christian Raschner is a state-certified ski instructor and a ski trainer.

Christian Raschner studied in Innsbruck and Salzburg, is married and has two sons.
