In Bansko, Bulgaria, Marco Odermatt claimed his sixth FIS Alpine Skiing World Cup win of the season in giant slalom. The Swiss skier led the first run by 0.35 seconds over Norway’s Alexander Steen Olsen and was the fastest of the late starters in the second run, crossing the finish line 0.91 seconds ahead of Steen Olsen. This win marks Odermatt’s 10th World Cup victory of the season and puts him in a commanding lead to secure the overall crystal globe.
Odermatt has also been leading individual disciplines standings for three events, as well as overall competition, making it highly likely that he will win a third small crystal globe in giant slalom. For Steen Olsen, this was his second podium finish and his first in giant slalom while Austria’s Manuel Feller finished third place just 0.17 seconds behind Steen Olsen.
