Maria Höfl-Riesch is one of the most successful ski racers in the world. Her record: three gold medals and one silver medal at the Olympics, two world championship titles, four world championship bronze medals, overall World Cup winner, 27 World Cup victories. She first stood on skis at the age of three, became a professional skier at 16 and competed in the World Cup for the first time in 2001. Family and friends appreciate her natural manner as well as her diligence, honesty and reliability. Not least because of these qualities, she is in demand as a brand ambassador for well-known companies (including Hapag-Lloyd Cruises, Sportalm, Head, Audi and Hublot). Since the end of her career, Maria has accompanied the World Cup and other major alpine skiing events as a TV expert. She also developed a fitness program and in 2017 her book "Maria macht dich fit" was published. Maria regularly inspires her audience with a firework of impulses on the topic "The way to the top of the world". Maria is socially involved as an Academy Member for the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation and as a member of the Board of Trustees for the DFL Foundation. She encourages people to follow their path with passion and an iron will.
