Mani first discovered Skijumping in 2012 after watching the Bergisel Four Hills Skijumping Tournament in Innsbruck. Even after her dad showed her many videos of Skijumping crashes, she still wanted to try the sport.

At the age of 10 Mani started Skijumping near Innsbruck with her local club `SV Innsbruck Bergisel´. After a few years she was invited to join the regional squad, for whom she still competes, (Tyrolian Ski Federation -TSV) and started competing in the Nordic Combined Event (Skijumping and Cross Country skiing) taking part in Austrian National Competitions and Championships.

Mani attends the specialist Stams Ski Academy School in Tirol, which is a sports school specially focused on Skiing, Snowboarding and Skijumping. Since starting in 2018 she has made significant progress and is now competing in FIS and Alpine Cup Events across Europe and is working towards the next Olympic opportunities.
