infoAt first cross country skiing was Elena's sports. After jumping a little around on cross country skis, she tried out skijumping one day - and was totally happy by this discipline. Her enthusiasm for this sports soon spread onto her family. And now all of her siblings are involved in this sports: Her older brother Benjamin is a ski jumping coach and her younger brother Mattia is successful in nordic combined skiing. Her younger sister Anna participated in some skijumping junior competitios, but stopped jumping in 2009.


Elena attended her first international competition in the summer 2003 in Bischofshofen. Since the introduction of the Ladies Continental Cup in 2005 she is one of the most established jumpers in this series. Her first victory in a CoC was in October 2010 in Liberec.

Nevertheless her greatest successes so far were at Junior World Championships. She is the only female jumper, who owns a full set of medal from this event. 2006 in Kranj she won Bronze, 2008 in Zakopane Silver and finally 2010 in Hinterzarten Gold.

After finishing the commercial highschool in St. Ulrich she was able to professionalize skijumping, as she was admitted into a sports group of the Italian Financial Guard.

She won the Italian Championships twice, in 2008 and 2006.
