Michelle Gisin is part of a family of champions.

Born into a family of skiers (Dominique, Olympic downhill champion and Marc, world cup racer), Michelle started skiing at the age of 1 and hasn’t left them since.

Born in Engelberg, she spends many hours in her mountains and now around the world.

Michelle shows qualities very quickly and wins her first races quickly. She continued her education at a ski school and participated in her first FIS races with excellent results.

Slowed down by 3 years of injuries, she reveals herself to the public in combined where she obtains her first podium (2nd in Val d’Isère) and her first world medal (2nd in St Moritz), an exceptionally strong moment since she shared this podium with another Swiss woman, Wendy Holdener!

She then won the Olympic title in combined the following season!

Very versatile, she had an exceptional 20/21 season, winning her first World Cup in Semmering in slalom and finishing 3rd in the overall World Cup standings.

Michelle is an athlete to watch!


More and more versatile, she lines up in all disciplines. She is the most successful in slalom, then in giant and combined.
