Marcoux burst onto the IPC World Cup scene in 2013 when, at just 15 years old, he scored three World Cup podium finishes and earned a silver medal at the world championships in La Molina, Spain. In 2014 he became a three-time Paralympic medallist when he (guided by Robin Fémy) won gold in giant slalom and bronze in downhill and super-G at the Sochi Paralympic Winter Games as the youngest member of the Canadian Paralympic Team. Marcoux races in the visually impaired category and is guided by his older brother, BJ Marcoux. The close-knit brothers, from Sault-Ste Marie, Ont., used to go-cart race competitively until Mac lost his vision to a degenerative condition. Inspired by Canada’s McKeever brothers, the pair took their need for speed to the ski hill and haven’t looked back.
