Alpine skiing: Marco Odermatt, 1 year of giant domination

The 26-year-old genius has not lost since his second place in February 2023 at Palisades Tahoe (United States) and he has not been off the podium in the specialty since March 2021. He almost ended his streak crazy in Schladming in mid-January, where he finished far from the best (11th) during the first round of the nocturnal giant. But “Odi” finally managed an incredible second round to snatch victory.

After two weeks without competition due to the lack of snow, the giants set off on Saturday on the Bulgarian slopes. In any case, the forced cut did not seem to bother Odermatt, who signed his 34th World Cup victory on Saturday. After a first round won without taking any risks, he was untouchable in the second, pushing his main competitors far away.

In the end, he was almost a second (91 hundredths) ahead of the Norwegian Alexander Steen Olsen, who reached his first giant podium, and the Austrian Manuel Feller (1.08).

“The track was good, the conditions were good. I had fun,” commented Odermatt with a smile in the finish area.

Undisputed leader of the world ranking of his favorite discipline of the giant with 600 points out of 600 possible after six victories out of six this season, Odermatt is also at the top of the general ranking of the World Cup. He has twice as many points as his French runner-up Cyprien Sarrazin, and is heading straight for a third consecutive big globe this winter.

Among the French, Léo Anguenot entered the top 15 with a 15th place, signing his best result in the World Cup. Thibaut Favrot ranks 19th.
