Ingrid Jacquemod

Ingrid Jacquemod ( born September 23, 1978 in Bourg -Saint -Maurice ) is a French former alpine skier. She was particularly successful in the disciplines of downhill and Super -G.


Jacquemod, the daughter of an English mother and an Italian from the Aosta Valley, grew up in Val d'Isere, where her father was technical manager for the World Cup races. She took off in January 1995 participated in FIS races and was able to win at this stage a total of 24 times. In December 1995 she launched for the first time in the European Cup. In December 1996, they celebrated their only European Cup victory in the giant slalom at St. Sebastian. On November 26, 1996 in Park City for the first time Jacquemod took part in a World Cup race. The first World Cup points she brought on 18 January 1997, No. 21 in the giant slalom in Zwiesel.

At the Junior World Championships 1997 in Schladming was Jacquemod vice world champion in giant slalom. The following year, she won the Junior World Championships in 1998 in Chamonix, combining the gold medal, again in the giant slalom silver medal in the downhill and a bronze medal. In its hitherto strongest discipline, the giant slalom, Jacquemod struggled to compete in the World Cup, which is why she began to specialize in the speed disciplines Downhill and Super -G. The first top- 10 ranking she succeeded on 11 February 2000 at the Super -G of Santa Caterina, what could they confirm in the 1999/2000 season with five other placings in the top ten.

The two following three seasons ran for Jacquemod less successful until they in the departure of Kvitfjell scored their first podium finish in March 2003. The best result in the 2003/04 season was a fourth place. Your only victory in the World Cup, she celebrated on 7 January 2005 in the departure of Santa Caterina. A great success she succeeded at the World Ski Championships in Bormio in 2005, when she in the newly created team competition, won the bronze medal together with Pierrick Bourgeat, Carole Montillet, Christel Pascal, Laure and Jean- Pierre Vidal Pequegnot.

This was followed by a season with more moderate performance. In the season 2006/ 07 Jacquemod never stood on the podium though, but with consistently good results they finished fifth in the downhill discipline standings, to ninth place in the Combined World Cup and tenth place in the overall World Cup. Quite similar was also the season 2007/ 08: Again, she managed no podium, but finished second in the final ranking seventh in the combination, eighth in the downhill and finished ninth in the giant slalom. The preparation for the winter 2008/ 09 she taught entirely on taking place in their homeland Val d'Isere World Cup from, but the season was generally disappointing and at the World Cup it was no more than 15 square.

Their most successful World Cup season had Jacquemod in winter 2009/10, when it was twice second and once third. In the downhill discipline rating they finished fourth, what with her best performance of the season was the same as ever. To this end, she was sixth in the super -G standings and ninth in the overall World Cup. In this third part in the Olympics, Vancouver 2010, she was tenth in the super -G. In the World Cup season 2010/11 again he added two fifth places. In April 2011 Jacquemod announced her resignation.
