Marc Girardelli ski champion is a 5-time winner of the overall ski World Cup. Girardelli is one of the greatest skiers of all time. Marc was born in Austria, but moved to race for Luxembourg. He was a flatlander, not from one of the famous Alpine villages so opportunities to move up were not available to Marc. His father became his coach and this team of 3 people had to take on the world. It made their task even more challenging especially when it came to events like downhill which require a bigger team to be safe.
