France’s Marie Bochet totally dominated her sport in 2013 becoming the first athlete to complete a Grand Slam of all five events at one Alpine Skiing World Championships - and she achieved this at the age of just 19. She won Downhill, Slalom, Giant Slalom, Super Combined and Super-G at La Molina in Spain, with a remarkable display of fearless and technical skiing.
She also won the World Cup finals in Sochi and will now start as a strong favourite at the 2014 Paralympic Winter Games over the same runs. Marie, who suffers from agenesis of the left arm, started skiing at five and made her Paralympic Winter Games debut in Vancouver in 2010 at 15.
