Twelve athletes in three groups are in Italy’s team for the 2011/12 season. Barbara Stuffer takes time out.
The Italian Winter Sports Federation (Federazione Italiana Sport Invernali – FISI) has nominated it’s teams for the 2011/12 season. 12 athletes in three groups are in the team. The Group “A” with Lisa Demetz, Roberta D’Agostina, Evelyn Insam and Oslo silver medallist Elena Runggaldier will most likely attend the World Cups.
Not in the team is Barbara Stuffer. After two very disappointing years she decided to take time out from ski jumping. Still in the summer 2009 she jumped very well and took a 9th and 13th rank at the Continental Cups in Pöhla and Oberwiesenthal. But since the beginning of the 2009/10 winter, she was far behind in most competitions. Hopefully she will return to the jumping hills next year with new motivation.
