How did Marcel Hirscher Make Her Money & Wealth?
Born on March 2, 1989, in Salzburg, Austria, Marcel Hirscher grew up in the village of Annaberg-Lungotz, where he began skiing at the age of two. Coached by his parents, who had operated a skiing school, he quickly picked up various skills on the snowy hills. At the age of fifteen, he competed in his first FIS (Federation Internationale de Ski) race.
Three years later, he competed in his first World Cup event. Though he didn’t manage to finish on the podium, he later claimed a gold and silver medal at the FIS Junior World Championships. That same year, he had completed his studies at Bad Hofgastein’s ski management school.
Despite his achievements, however, he eventually broke his ankle, prior to the 2011 World Championships, which effectively ended his season. After struggling to recover for a period, he successfully returned to form in 2012. In fact, he was able to win his first World Cup title in 2012, as well as two medals at the 2013 World Alpine Championships.
In 2014, he represented Austria in his second Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. Competing in the men’s giant slalom and slalom, he went on to win a silver medal in the latter event, having narrowly missed the gold by just 0.28 of a second.
Over the next few years, Hirscher won several titles at the World Championships. In fact, he had most recently won two gold medals in St. Moritz, on the Slalom and Giant Slalom.
Earlier this month, Hirscher also represented his country at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Despite having sustained an ankle fracture earlier in the season, he successfully won two gold medals in the combined and giant slalom disciplines. Naturally, he would have also received a decent amount of prize money along with the gold.
As far as media appearances go, the skier has been featured in a few TV programs in his native country over the years such as Das Aktuelle Sportstudio, Bergwelten, Willkommen Osterreich, and Wild Spirits.
