Marielle Thompson, one of the most successful ski cross athletes in the world, has amassed 35 World Cup podiums, 20 World Cup victories, one World Championship podium, three Crystal Globes and Olympic gold. In 2012, she became the first Canadian to win an individual ski cross Crystal Globe as the Overall World Cup Champion, a title she successfully reclaimed in 2014 and 2017. Nicknamed 'Big Air Mar', Thompson was poised and ready to defend her 2014 Olympic gold when a crash in training in October of 2017 put a wrench in her plans. With aggressive rehab, Thompson returned to snow just three months after a torn ACL and won the qualification run at the 2018 Olympic Games. Appearing not to have missed a beat, despite missing out on the entire World Cup season, a bobble in the first heat caused her to crash and miss out on defending her medal. Her return to snow in November 2018 was marked with wins at the Austrian National Championship and on the Europa Cup. Since the beginning of the 2018-2019 season, Thompson has already climbed four times onto the podium, with a bronze medal at Arosa’s World Cup and a silver medal in Innichen, ITA, in December and a silver medal in Blue Mountain, Ontario, in late January. She is the new ladies’ ski cross World Champion, winning gold at the World Champs , held in early February in Park City, Utah.
