Swiss Skiing Phenomenon Marco Odermatt Wins Ninth Straight Giant Slalom Title

Marco Odermatt Continues Giant Slalom Dominance at Bansko in 23/24 Alpine Ski World Cup

Swiss skier Marco Odermatt has continued his dominance in the Alpine Skiing World Cup, winning his ninth straight victory in the giant slalom discipline. This is Odermatt’s 10th race win of the season, and he now leads the overall World Cup points tally by 822 points over French speed specialist Cyprien Sarrazin.

During Sunday’s race in Bansko, Bulgaria, Odermatt finished an impressive 0.91 seconds ahead of Norway’s Alexander Steen Olsen. He maintained his lead throughout both runs, securing another well-deserved victory. Austrian slalom ace Manuel Feller finished in third place, just over a second behind the winner.

Odermatt was thrilled with his performance, saying, “The hill and conditions were great fun to ski on. The first run was challenging with turny sections and difficult tactics. The second run allowed me to push harder and I am so happy with my result.”

With 16 podium finishes out of 18 World Cup races this season, Odermatt has all but secured a third consecutive big Crystal Globe. Feller will look to improve on his third place finish in Sunday’s slalom as he strives to keep pace with the dominant Swiss skier.
