In my junior years, I also participated in the Elite World Championships, World Cups and even the 2014 Olympics in Sochi. That was an incredibly emotional and wonderful year. Together with my two sisters, who have been my idols and motivation since childhood, I was able to compete in the relay which was the first time in the history of our sport that three sisters competed in the same race.
Only three months later I successfully completed college and was able to start the life of a professional biathlete. I also started studying economics at Fernuni in Switzerland and will be doing my bachelor's degree in January 2019. Since November 2014 I am working as a sports instructor with the border patrol.
Again and again, I have been able to collect some World Cup points, but during the last two years my performance has not been quite as strong due to health problems. I am still young enough to make a significant progress so I stay motivated and disciplined on a daily basis to establish myself in the world rankings. It is important for me to trust the training process at all times.
