Martin Höllwarth (born 13 April 1974) is an Austrian former ski jumper.

Career[edit]

At the 1992 Winter Olympics in Albertville, he won three silver medals. At the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, he won bronze in the team large hill competition. Höllwarth's biggest successes were at the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships where he earned six medals, including three golds (team normal hill in 2001 and 2005; team large hill in 2005) and three bronzes (individual normal hill in 2001; team large hill in 1999 and 2001).

On 4 February 2001, whilst returning from an event in Willingen, a car driven by Höllwarth was involved in an accident in which Austrian coach Alois Lipburger died. Höllwarth and another passenger, fellow ski jumper and countryman Andreas Widhölzl, escaped with minor injuries.[citation needed]

Höllwarth announced his retirement at the 2007/08 season.
