Nicole Hosp (German pronunciation: [niːkɔl hɔsp]; born 6 November 1983) is an Austrian World Cup alpine ski racer, a former world champion and three-time Olympic medalist.

Career[edit]

Born in Ehenbichl, Tyrol, she won the overall World Cup title in 2007 and the season title in giant slalom. A versatile all-around racer, Hosp has won World Cup races in 4 of the 5 alpine skiing disciplines (super-G, giant slalom, slalom and combined), and was World Champion in the giant slalom in 2007. Now she competes in 4 disciplines: slalom, super G, downhill and combined. Although she won giant slalom crystal globe in 2007, she stopped to drive giant slalom, after being unable to qualify to second run.

Hosp suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury to her right knee at Sölden in October 2009 and missed the rest of the 2010 season, including the 2010 Winter Olympics.[1]
