Markus Salcher - biography

Despite being born with hemiplegia, for Austrian Markus Salcher it was never a question of whether he could ski, but rather how. Encouraged by his father, Salcher was on skis for the first time when he was two-and-a-half years old.
Salcher competed in able-bodied ski races until he got noticed by a former coach of a para-athlete and joined a junior team. Salcher is a graduate of the IPC's 2006 development camp, which gave young athletes an opportunity to develop their technical skills in an inspiring and motivating atmosphere.
In 2010 he joined the Austrian national team. In 2011-12, Salcher won his first World Cup event and became his country's national champion in the super-G. Salcher won gold medals in downhill and super-G at the 2013 IPC Alpine Skiing World Championships.
His goal for the Sochi 2014 Paralympic Winter Games is to win a medal. Salcher's father was a coach of the Austrian para-alpine skiing team at the Torino 2006 Paralympic Winter Games.
