Alpine skiing: Steen Olsen leader of the second Aspen giant, Odermatt only 3rd

The Norwegian Alexander Steen Olsen set the best time in the first round of the second slalom in Aspen, in the United States, on Saturday, relegating the Swiss Marco Odermatt to provisional 3rd place.

Steen Olsen beat the Swiss Loïc Meillard on a tricky course, 2nd at 9/100th, while Odermatt, undisputed king of the discipline and the specialty, is 32/100th behind.

Steen Olsen won the slalom in Palisades Tahoe, California, last weekend to sign his first victory in an Alpine Skiing World Cup event.

At the end of the second round, the start of which will be given at 9:00 p.m. French time, it can put an end to Odermatt's impressive series which won the seven giants on the program this winter.

Including last season's results, the 2022 Olympic champion and 2023 world giant champion won the last eleven World Cup giants.

The Swiss, winner of the first Aspen giant on Friday, his 12th success of the winter, is already assured of winning the world No.1 globe for the third consecutive year.

He is also already guaranteed to finish at the top of the giant slalom world rankings, as in 2022 and 2023.

Best Frenchman in the first round, Thibaut Favrot occupies provisional 15th place, 1 sec 75/100 behind Steen Olsen, after the passage of the first thirty-five competitors.
