Simone Greiner-Petter-Memm started out like many biathletes as a cross-country skier . She had her first international success at the Nordic Junior World Ski Championships in 1987 in Asiago . There she won silver over 15 km. She started for the GDR at the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary and finished fifth in the season. Their individual starts were mostly less successful. Simone Greiner-Petter-Memm had her last victory as a cross-country skier at the Ski World Cup in Toblach, Italy in January 1988. In 1990 she retired from competitive sports. After the birth of her child, she returned to competitive sports as a biathlete in 1991 and started the World Cup for the first time in 1992 under the name Simone Greiner-Petter .
Greiner-Petter-Memm became a tragic figure at the 1994 Olympic relay race in Lillehammer. The German relay was in a promising position. In the relay around Uschi Disl , Antje Harvey and Petra Schaaf , she was the third runner. In two bouts of shooting, she could only land four hits with the maximum number of 16 cartridges and had to run three penalty loops after both prone and standing shooting. In spite of this, the German relay team reached the silver medal in the end, but was almost four minutes behind the victorious Russian relay team.
At the biathlon world championships between 1995 and 1999 she won gold four times with German relay teams. In the World Cup she achieved four victories and 10 more podium places.
Simone Greiner-Petter-Memm is married to the former combiner Silvio Memm and has one child. She is an elementary school teacher and teaches German, mathematics, home and science classes and sports as a minor.
