“THE SOCIAL VALUES OF SPORT” Category
A great love for snow that Fiamme Gialle allow her to cultivate so much that at the age of 18 she made her debut in the national alpine skiing team. Tenacious, strong-willed, she fought many adversities that have marked her life: after each stop, she showed her qualities and achieved world-class results. 2005 seems to be the year of the definitive return to the top with the victory of a World Cup test, but bad luck decides for Elena that she had to stop again. With equal determination the girl from the upper Val Badia is determined to get back into the big tour and she does it conquering a series of excellent results, but not those victories that she could have achieved. In 2018 she is again first in the World Cup and she could look forward to participating in the Olympics in PyeongChang. This dream is interrupted because of an evil adversary that Elena defeats with that inner strength that only the great champions in sport and life have.
