Athlete Biography

Having competed on and off for the past decade, Elena Galiabovitch began to really knuckle down in the sport just two years ago and is now off to her debut Olympic Games in Rio.

Born in Belarus, Galiabovitch moved to Australia when she was four to grow up in Melbourne. She decided to give shooting a go after her parents met as a result of the sport.

She is coached by her father Vladimir Glaibovitch who is one of the nation’s leading instructors.

Galiabovitch won her first Oceania title in the 25m pistol event in late 2015 and will compete in both that event and the 10m air pistol in Rio.

She graduated to become a medical doctor in 2014 and began working in 2015 as an intern at Eastern Health. She has now moved on to being a surgical resident at Melbourne's Monash Health.
