Mac Marcoux burst onto the IPC World Cup scene in 2013, at 15-years-old. He scored three World Cup podium finishes and earned a silver medal at the World Championships in La Molina, SPA in 2013. Skiing in the visually impaired category, he became a three-time Paralympic medalist 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 Games. At the time of this outstanding success in Sochi, Marcoux was the youngest member of the Canadian Paralympic Team. In the 2015-16 season, Marcoux walked away with a Crystal Globe in the super G and downhill disciplines. Marcoux has continued to follow up his success and captured the downhill Crystal Globe in the 2016-17 season. The 2016-17 also included fresh challenges for Marcoux as he welcomed a new guide, Jack Leitch. Their strong partnership made for great success on the circuit. At the 2017 Para Alpine Skiing World Championships with his guide, Leitch, Marcoux won four of the five events (downhill, super-G, giant slalom and slalom). The duo also won silver in the super combined. At the 2018 Paralympic Games, Marcoux and Leitch won gold in downhill and bronze in giant slalom. In the 2017-18 season, he won the IPC Crystal Globe in super-G, downhill and the overall. He capped off the season as the Male Para-Alpine Athletes of the Year at the Audi 2018 Canadian Ski Racing Awards.
