Renate Götschl (born 6 August 1975 in Judenburg, Austria) is a former champion alpine ski racer. She is a two-time individual World Champion in the combined (1997) and downhill (1999), and has won a total of 9 World Championships medals. She also won two Olympic medals in 2002, the bronze medal in downhill and the silver medal in the combined.

Career[edit]

Götschl made her World Cup debut in 1993, on 14 March 1993, winning the slalom in Lillehammer, Norway. This was followed by more than 100 podium (top 3) results, including at least one win in four of the five disciplines; only a giant slalom win has eluded her, the best result in this discipline being a second place in Lienz in December 2003.

She won the overall World Cup title in 2000, and she has also won five World Cup discipline titles in downhill (1997, 1999, 2004, 2005 and 2007), three in super-G (2000, 2004 and 2007), and two in combined (2000 and 2002).

Götschl has won nine medals at the World Championships, including gold medals in combined (1997) in downhill (1999) and in team event (2007). At the 2002 Winter Olympics, she won a silver medal in combined and a bronze medal in the downhill.

On 28 January 2007, when she was second in a super-G in San Sicario, she celebrated her 100th podium in World Cup. Her total of 46 World Cup race wins (as of 14 March 2007) is fourth all-time among women, behind only Annemarie Moser-Pröll, Vreni Schneider and Lindsey Vonn. One of her favorite slopes is in Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy, where on 20 January 2007 she became the first alpine skier ever to win 10 races at a single World Cup venue. This highscore was held until December 2011 when Lindsey Vonn celebrated her ninth, tenth and eleventh victory on three consecutive days in Lake Louise, Canada.
