  • At the 2010 Winter Olympics, Hirscher placed fourth in the giant slalom and fifth in the slalom at Whistler Creekside. He placed fourth in the giant slalom at the 2009 World Championships, but broke his ankle the weekend preceding the 2011 World Championships, which ended his 2011 season.[2]

    Returning after injury, Hirscher had his best season to date in terms of wins in 2012 with 9 victories and a total of 14 podiums, all in the two technical events (except for one third place in the season's last Super G). He won the World Cup overall and giant slalom titles, and placed third in the slalom.[3]

    In October 2012, Hirscher was awarded the Skieur d'Or Award[4] by members of the International Association of Ski Journalists for his performances during the previous season.

    Hirscher won the overall World Cup title again in 2013 with 6 victories; he also won the slalom title and was runner-up in giant slalom.[5] Hirscher scored a total of 18 podium finishes out of 19 races in the two technical events. The only race in either slalom or giant slalom where he finished outside top 3 was the giant slalom in Adelboden. In that particular race Hirscher was leading after the first run, built up his advantage to over a second in the second run, but nearly fell several gates before the final, thus missing the win and finished only 16th. He became the first male racer to retain the overall World Cup title since fellow Austrian Stephan Eberharter in 2002 and 2003[6] and the first to win it three years in a row since American Phil Mahre did so in 1981, 1982 and 1983.

    In 2015 Hirscher dominated the giant slalom standings with 5 wins, including a winning margin of 3.28 seconds in Garmisch,[7] and won the GS title for the second time. With his slalom win in Zagreb[8] he became the most successful Austrian male World Cup slalom skier surpassing Benjamin Raich. In the final race of the season in Meribel he overturned a 55-point deficit in the standings by winning his 16th World Cup slalom, and with it won the slalom title for the third year in a row.[9] Hirscher became the first male alpine skier to win the overall World Cup title four times in a row.

    In 2016 Hirscher became the most successful Austrian male World Cup GS skier by winning in Beaver Creek, Colorado, surpassing Benjamin Raich and Hermann Maier. With his GS win in Alta Badia, Italy (his 3rd consecutive win at that venue), he became Austria's most successful World Cup GS skier overtaking Annemarie Moser-Pröll. Another GS win in Kranjska Gora, Slovenia confirmed Hirscher as the GS title winner with one race to go. To wrap up an amazing season with 8 wins and 19 podiums Hirscher also won the men's overall World Cup title, his 5th consecutive overall title, a feat never before achieved by a male skier. His points total also enabled Austria to narrowly beat France in the men's nations cup by 201 points, the narrowest winning margin for many years. Hirscher was the only Austrian male skier to win a race in the entire season, and scored 30.9% (1795 out of 5804) of the Austrian men's nations cup points.
