The name Marielle Thompson is synonymous with ski cross success. As one of the most successful ski cross athletes in the world, Marielle has amassed 36 World Cup podiums, 20 World Cup victories, three individual Crystal Globes, took home the 2014 Olympic gold medal, and is the reigning (2019) World Champion. 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. Thompson returned with a vengeance in the 2019 season and claimed five podium results, as well as the World Championship title in February in Park City, Utah.
