The 28-year-old Eitberger will become a mother in February, according to the German Basketball Federation.
"I want to participate in the 2022 Olympics," says Eitberger, who will return to the track in the pre-Olympic season. She also plans to participate in the 2023 World Cup in Oberhof.
Eitberger finished second in the World Cup twice, but was fourth in Germany last season. She celebrated six World Cup victories.
Eitberger is last year's Olympic champion. She has two World Champion bronze medals in a sprint competition.
After last season, Tatyana Hifner took notice of her career, which is why Natalia Gaizenberger and Julia Taubica will compete for the new German luxury riders.
