Marco Odermatt Continues his Unbeatable Streak in Giant Slalom at Bansko in 23/24 Alpine Ski World Cup

Swiss ski racer Marco Odermatt continued his impressive performance in the giant slalom discipline with a commanding win at the Alpine Skiing World Cup event in Bansko, Bulgaria. With this ninth consecutive victory, Odermatt has now won six out of six races this season and added to his three victories from the previous season.

In the latest race, Odermatt secured victory by a margin of 0.91 seconds over Norway’s Alexander Steen Olsen. This win brought his total race wins for the season to 10 and his overall World Cup points tally to 1,506, a massive 822 points ahead of French skier Cyprien Sarrazin.

Odermatt displayed a dominant performance in both runs, leading Steen Olsen by 0.35 seconds after the first run and still being third-fastest in the second run. This was enough for him to secure another triumph and continue his winning streak. Austrian slalom specialist Manuel Feller finished in third place, just over a second behind the winner.

Speaking after the race, Odermatt expressed his satisfaction with the hill and conditions, describing the slope as fun to ski. He also mentioned that his confidence is at an all-time high 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 title. Feller will be looking to improve upon his third-place finish in Sunday’s upcoming slalom event and try to keep up with Odermatt’s dominance on the course.
