Injuries He broke his left ankle in August 2017 and was unable to compete for three months. (bbc.co.uk, 12 Nov 2017; olympics.nbcsports.com, 18 Aug 2017)

In February 2011 he fractured the navicular bone in his foot after he fell during a giant slalom World Cup race in Hinterstoder, Austria. (marcelhirscher.at, 25 Sep 2013)
Start He began skiing at age three in Annaberg, Austria. He competed in his first race at age six. (amersports.com, 21 May 2009)

Additional information General
HISTORIC ACHIEVEMENTS
In 2017 he won a sixth consecutive overall World Cup title, becoming the first male alpine skier to win the overall title six times. In the same year he won two gold and one silver at the world championships to match his medal tally from the 2013 and 2015 editions, becoming the first male alpine skier from any nation to win three medals in three consecutive editions of the world championships. (laola1.at, 20 Apr 2017; redbull.com, 04 Mar 2017; olympics.nbcsports.com, 04 Mar 2017)

GLOBES OVER GOLD
Speaking in 2017 after winning his sixth crystal globe, he said he would prefer to win more overall World Cup titles than an Olympic gold medal. He wants to surpass the record of female compatriot Annemarie Moser-Proll who also won six crystal globes. "I want another crystal globe, rather than the gold medal at the 2018 Olympic Games in Pyeongchang. We have enough Olympic champions from Austria. It would be cool to extend the record of overall World Cup titles." (laola1.at, 20 Apr 2017; redbull.com, 04 Mar 2017; olympics.nbcsports.com, 04 Mar 2017)
