CareerEdit

Iraschko-Stolz has competed in ski jumping since 2000. She is best known for her three individual victories at the Holmenkollen Ski Festival (2000, 2001, 2003). In 2009–10 she won the women's Continental Cup. She won the gold medal at the 2007 Winter Universiade in Turin, gold at the 2011 Ski Jumping World Championships in Holmenkollen, and silver at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi. At World Cup level, she has nine individual wins and finished second overall in the first ever women's World Cup season in 2011/12.

On 29 January 2003, Iraschko-Stolz became the first woman to fly over 200 metres, during practice for a World Cup event on the ski flying hill in Kulm,[1] a women's world record which still stands today.

Due to being injured, she was unable to compete in the Nordic World Championships 2013.
