terweilElli Terwiel made her official Olympic debut at Sochi 2014 in the slalom, which she went into with the valuable experience of having been a forerunner at Vancouver 2010 for the slalom and giant slalom. It was her first time at a major global competition.

A slalom specialist, Terwiel had a breakout season in 2012-13 when she record three top-3o World Cup results. At one of those in Maribor, Slovenia, she was actually second-fastest in the second slalom run, en route to a 17th place finish. In November 2013 Terwiel improved her career-best result to 11th place in Levi, Finland.

Terwiel has been competing on the World Cup circuit since January 2011, recording her first finish in December 2011. She debuted at the FIS World Ski Championships in 2013 with a 28th place finish in the slalom.
