Marcel Hirscher, the end of an era | FIS Alpine
Marcel Hirscher is beyond a doubt one of the best racers in the history of the World Cup. Throughout his career, the 30-year-old Austrian earned 67 World Cup wins, 128 World Cup podiums, 2 Olympic gold medals, 7 World Championship gold medals and, above all, eight straight World Cup overall titles. After keeping thousands of skiing fans waiting with bated breath, Hirscher officially announced that the 2018-19 season was sadly his last. He will not be returning to the slopes to try and break further records, but will instead focus on his family and enjoy life from a different perspective. There is nothing else to say except, Thank you Marcel! Thank you for watching, don’t forget to like, subscribe and hit the bell if you want to be kept up to date with all our latest content!
