Mac Marcoux

Para-alpine

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 then bronze in the downhill and super G events at the 2014 Sochi Paralympic Winter Games. At the time of this outstanding success in Sochi, Marcoux was 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-kart race competitively until Mac lost his vision as a result of 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.
