Mac Marcoux

Mac Marcoux


Mac Marcoux established himself as one of the brightest young stars in para-alpine skiing at the 2014 Sochi Paralympic Games.  At age 16, he and his guide and Robin Fémy collected a gold in the giant slalom and bronze in the downhill and Super G. Marcoux burst onto the IPC World Cup scene in 2013 when, at just 15, he scored three World Cup podium finishes, earned a silver medal in giant slalom at the world championships in La Molina, Spain, and became the national slalom and giant slalom champion. Marcoux races in the visually impaired category on the IPC World Cup circuit.

Marcoux originally skied with his brother Billy Joe Marcoux as his guide, but Billy Joe suffered a back injury just prior to the Sochi Games, so Fémy stepped in as his guide. The close-knit brothers from Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., used to go-cart race competitively until Marcoux lost his vision due to a degenerative condition. Inspired by Canada’s McKeever brothers, the pair took their need for speed to the ski hill. The duo had no previous experience skiing with radio communication or as a pair, but they mastered the technology and the slopes to quickly make their mark as a medal producer for Canada.

Marcoux is also a BMX bike enthusiast and spends his free time fishing, four-wheeling, or at the stock car track. Don’t tell his mom, but he sometimes mountain bikes in Whistler with a guide using the same radio communication techniques as on the ski hill.
