At Sochi 2014 Philippe Marquis became the second member of his family to compete at the Olympic Winter Games, following in the footsteps of his older brother Vincent who had finished fourth at Vancouver 2010 where the younger Marquis was a forerunner. Four years later he finished ninth in his Olympic debut in Sochi.

Marquis was named FIS World Cup rookie of the year for moguls in 2008-09. Since then, he has had to come back from two shoulder surgeries in two years. His 2010-11 season came to an early end when he had his left shoulder operated on in December. In the spring of 2012 he underwent a second surgery on the same shoulder. Before that second surgery, however, he had established himself amongst the world’s elite, earning his first World Cup podiums and World Cup victory to finish fourth in the overall moguls standings.

Marquis added to his World Cup resumé in 2012-13, when he captured the bronze medal at the Sochi test event, sharing the podium with fellow Canadian Mikaël Kingsbury. He was also one of four Canadians ranked in the top seven in the World Cup moguls standings.
