Athlete Profile: Mac Marcoux

Mac Marcoux in action during the downhill in Panorama, CANMarcoux burst onto the IPC World Cup scene in 2013 when, at just 15 years old, he scored three World Cup podium finishes, earned a silver medal in giant slalom at the world championships in La Molina, Spain, and became the national slalom and giant slalom champion. Marcoux races in the visually impaired category as the youngest competitor on the IPC World Cup circuit and is guided by his older brother, Billy Joe Marcoux. The close-knit brothers, from Sault-Ste Marie, Ont., used to go-cart race competitively until Mac lost his vision to a degenerative condition. Inspired by Canada’s McKeever brothers, the pair took their need for speed to the ski hill and haven’t looked back. Marcoux is also a BMX bike enthusiast.
