Biography

Marlies SCHILD

Over the course of a 15-year international career, Austrian skier Marlies Schild racked up a record number of victories in women’s FIS World Cup slalom events and won no fewer than four Olympic medals.

Pivotal choice

Born in Styria (AUT), Marlies Schild shone in skiing’s speed events (downhill and super-G) during her teenage years, but after suffering a series of knee injuries and having to undergo several operations, she made the judicious decision to concentrate on the less dangerous technical disciplines, particularly slalom.

The Austrian’s aptitude on the slopes enabled her to rapidly become part of the national “Wunderteam” and she competed in her first Olympic Winter Games at Salt Lake City 2002 at the age of 20, although she failed to finish the first run of the slalom competition.

World-record feat

From her FIS World Cup breakthrough in Sestriere (ITA) on 13 March 2004 until her final triumph on 29 December 2013 in Lienz (AUT), Schild chalked up 35 wins, surpassing the previous record of 34 held by Swiss skiing icon Vreni Schneider, achieved between 1987 and 1995.
