Swiss skier Marco Odermatt continued his impressive run in the giant slalom discipline with a commanding 0.91-second victory at the Alpine Skiing World Cup event in Bansko, Bulgaria. Odermatt has now won six out of six races this season, setting a new record for consecutive wins in this discipline.
In the latest race, Odermatt secured victory by leading Norway’s Alexander Steen Olsen by 0.35 seconds in the first run. Although he was third-fastest in the second run, it was still enough to secure another triumph. Austrian slalom specialist Manuel Feller finished in third place, just over a second behind the winner.
Odermatt spoke after the race and expressed his satisfaction with the hill and conditions, describing the slope as fun to ski. He also mentioned that his confidence is at its highest level and that everything is working well for him.
Having landed on the podium in 16 out of 18 World Cup races this season, Odermatt has almost secured his third consecutive big Crystal Globe. Feller, on the other hand, will be looking to improve upon his third-place finish in the upcoming slalom event on Sunday. With only two races remaining before the end of the season, Odermatt remains unstoppable and is well on track to becoming a multiple world champion.
