My name is Elena Yakovishina. I am from beautiful Kamchatka (far east of Russia).
My parents like skiing. When I was 3 years old my parents came back to home after good skiing day and I put on my mother's shoes I took a stick and glasses. And I fell in love with skiing...
Skiing and everything connected with them my life, dream. I am grateful to have the opportunity to be part of the ski world. I was in Speed Team of Russia from 2012 year. At the moment, I want to continue to race in the speed disciplines. I will be in S-TEAM. They will give me all for speed.
I am cooperating mine training and season with S-TEAM. The Russian federation are not pays, I have to pay by myself... Mine season costs me in total about 140.000 EUR (salary for serviceman and coaches, travel costs, accommodation costs and others). I am trying find some sponsors and and it takes time.
My main goals this year are: to be in the top 30 in the world (speed) at the end of the season.
By contributing you will help me reach my goals but you will also take part in our journey.
Thank you very much
