With an average of nines wins per season, many thought it would be Hirscher, not Vonn or Schiffrin, to brake Ingemar Stenmarks long standing record of 86 titles.

Since Marcel squatted 418 pounds at the age of four and popped his cherry with a dumbbell not much later. It is fair to say he has good routine pumping iron. Since his attraction with the ladies (yes, we know he has a wife) will decrease with 13,7 % each year. Maybe it's possible the gym will be his sanctuary.
But as many sport profiles before him, he'll probably put his name on a bunch of vacuum cleaners and slippers, make a million euros and slowly.
Slowly fade out of startdom into regular life.
