At the 1978 Europeans Ferner was eliminated in the semifinal, but he made the 1980 Olympic team, only to remain at home when West Germany joined the American-led boycott. Ferner placed sixth at the European Indoor Championships in 1982 and seventh at the 1983 World Championships in Helsinki. Domestically Ferner won German Indoor titles in 1979, 1981 and 1984, but never managed to win an outdoor title, usually losing to Willi Wülbeck. In 1982 Ferner was awarded the Silver Bay Leaf of the German Track & Field Association. He was educated as an engineer in IT system planning.
