Elisabeth Osl

Elisabeth OslSport: Cycling

Nation: Austria

DOB: November 21, 1985

Career Highlights: One of Europe’s most exciting young mountain bikers, Osl was introduced to the sport in 1998 as a 13-year-old when her older sister - and now-fellow cyclist, Maria - signed her up for a race without letting her know. Nicknamed “Lisi,” Osl finished 11th in the women’s cross-country race at the 2008 Olympics in a time of 1:51:39. Three years later, at the Hadleigh Farm course that will play host to the mountain bike venue for the London Games, she finished fourth behind Canada’s Catherine Pendrel, the United States’ Georgia Gould and France’s Julie Bresset. Despite Osl’s fourth-place showing at the test event, the 2009 World Cup champion is expected to be Pendrel’s main competition for Olympic gold this summer.
