Jacqueline Seifriedsberger started her ski jumping career in 1995, at the tender age of four! She made her pro debut eight years later in 2003 when she began competing for Austria at FIS competitions. Always keen to progress, she later took part in the Continental Cup and, ultimately, the World Cup.
Over the years, her skills as a ski jumper have only increased. Her debut in the Ski Jumping Continental Cup came on July 23, 2004 in Park City, where she came an impressive eighth. Then, at the Junior World Championship in Tarvisio in 2007 she jumped into sixth place. Finally, on August 15, 2007 she won a Continental Cup jump for the first time at Pöhla.
At all the other jumps that season she finished in the top 10. On December 3, 2011 she made her World Cup debut in Lillehammer, taking 13th place. But as the 2011–12 season went on, she improved, scoring a series of mid-pack results. Then at the World Cup jump in Ljubno, she soared onto the podium for the first time in third place, going on to finish 11th in the overall World Cup standings.
Some of her most notable results to date include a first-place finish at the World Cup in Sapporo, a fourth place overall in the World Cup, a silver medal at the 2013 FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in the mixed team normal hill event, and bronze in the individual HS106.
In 2015 Seifriedsberger won the FIS Cup Ladies in Villach, Austria, and ended the 2015/2016 season in fourth place overall in the World Cup standings.
Seifriedsberger is now a regular feature in the top five at World Cup, Continental Cup and Grand Prix events around the globe.Read more
