In the latest Alpine Skiing World Cup event in Bansko, Bulgaria, Swiss superstar Marco Odermatt continued his dominant performance in the giant slalom discipline with a ninth consecutive win. This brought his total race wins for the season to 10 and his overall World Cup points tally to 1,506, an impressive 822 points ahead of French skier Cyprien Sarrazin.
Odermatt displayed a commanding performance in both runs, leading Steen Olsen by 0.35 seconds in the first run and still securing victory by a margin of 0.91 seconds in the second run. Austrian slalom specialist Manuel Feller finished third, 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. Feller, on the other hand, will be looking to improve upon his third-place finish in the upcoming slalom event on Sunday.
