Hormann has been president of the German Olympic Sports Federation since December 2013, but his leadership has come under criticism in recent years.
“In the past seven years we have given everything we have as a team to professionalize the federation and the sport in the country and give it a strong voice,” Hormann said.
Horman added that he wanted to pave the way for a new start after him in December.
