Marie Martinod's conferences

Conférence de Marie Martinod sur la motivation et le bien-être au travail par UnoMe le Swiss Speakers’ Bureau

Marie Martinod, the Olympic half-pipe silver medallist from Bourg Saint-Maurice in France. From a family who loves winter sports, Marie Martinod started skiing when she was two and a half. She started mogul and freestyle skiing when she was nine, at the traditional « Club des sports ». The Dynastar team then took her on board, and at the age of 16, she started competing in international freestyle contests. At the time, this was considered as a sport for boys. However, with her motivation, Marie Martinod managed to find a place for herself, winning several contests over several years.

For her personal development, she ended her career when she was 23, to start a family.

In 2011/2012, she was back in the game, enjoying half-pipe, which was introduced to the Olympics in 2014 in Sochi.

In 2013, she won the X Games, and won an Olympic silver medal in 2014. Due to health reasons, she had a quiet season between 2014 and 2015. In 2016, she was back on the podiums, winning two medals in three world cup rounds.

She is now the eldest of half-pipe athletes in the world cup, and an accomplished mother and wife.
