Damn, barely 18 years old :cry: 

 

I wonder where this somewhat vague website found that info they wrote (why?) about those letters, it's not mentioned in Austrian media unless I'm missing something..that site they mention doesn't say it (or not anymore?).

no idea...and that's the only news in English I could find...

 

in the Italian and Austrian press there's no mention of the reason for her death at all...

 

in any case, dying at the age of 18 is always really sad and touching, no matter why...

Ski-nordique mentioned the same thing I see (although it could be based on that article), at least that's a well-known site generally. And yeah, I totally agree with you. If those 'details' are true, especially 'because of pressure from the Austrian federation', said federation needs to take a very, very hard look at themselves..

 

I'm seeing the very unhealthy amount of pressure a federation can put on athletes quite often, wouldn't be surprised if that was too much for someone who was just a teenager :(

Some Italian specialized website spoke about her this morning
