CAREER RESULTS >>
Emilee was named to the Development Team of Women’s Ski Jumping USA in 2012 after qualifying to represent the U.S. at the inaugural 2012 Winter Youth Olympic Games in Innsbruck, AUT. Emilee made history as the event marked the first time women were allowed to ski jump in an International Olympic Committee-sanctioned event.
Emilee started ski jumping when she was just 5, following in the footsteps of her older sister, Elisabeth, a former jumper. She said that her sister stuck with it and did so well that she wanted to be able to do the same thing.
Emilee proudly represents the Central Division as a member of the Flying Eagles Ski Club. She moved to Park City, UT for the summer of 2013 to train with her Visa Women's Ski Jumping teammates.
Her longest jump so far of her young career is 106 meters in Westby, Wisconsin. She travels many weekends for competitions throughout the Mid-West and East Coast and made her Continental Cup debut in 2013 with a 19th place in Oberwiesenthal, GER.
Getting to represent the U.S. in the Youth Games was a huge honor, she said, and was a dream come true.
When not training or competing, Emilee likes to do what most teens do: hang out with friends, watch movies and cross-country ski and road bike.
