Simone Greiner-Petter-Memm (born September 15, 1967 in Jena, as Simone Greiner-Petter) is a German cross country skier and biathlete who competed from 1987 to 1997 in cross country skiing and from 1992 to 2000 in biathlon.

Cross country skiing results[edit]

As a cross country skier at the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, Greiner-Petter-Memm finished fifth in the 4 × 5 km relay and 15th in the 20 km event. She also finished 15th in the 20 km event at the 1987 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in Oberstdorf. Greiner-Petter-Memm's only individual World Cup victory was in a 20 km event in 1988.

Biathlon results[edit]

Switching to biathlon in 1992, Greiner-Petter-Memm earned a total of four individual World Cup career victories and had her best overall World cup finish of sixth in the 1993-94 season. At the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, she earned a silver medal in the 4 × 7.5 km relay despite blowing a noticeable lead during the standing phase of her leg. Greiner-Petter-Memm missed all five of her targets and missed with her three additional bullets, which results in five 150 m penalty loops afterwards.

She also earned gold medals at the Biathlon World Championships in the 4 × 7.5 km relay event (1995–1997, 1999).

Personal life[edit]

Her husband is Silvio Memm, a former nordic combined skier.
