Marko Odermat has won his sixth FIS Alpine Skiing World Cup victory in the giant slalom, leading by 0.35 seconds ahead of Norwegian Alexander Sten Olsen in the first run in Bansko, Bulgaria. In the second run, Odermat was the fastest of the late starters and crossed the finish line 0.91 seconds ahead of Stin Olsen.

This win marks Odermat’s tenth World Cup victory of the season and puts him in a commanding lead of over 800 points in the standings. With this performance, he is well-positioned to secure the overall Crystal Globe. In fact, he is likely to win a third small crystal globe in giant slalom as he currently leads the standings in three individual disciplines and the overall competition.

For Stin Olsen, this second place finish was his second podium appearance in his career and his first time on the podium in giant slalom. Austria’s Manuel Feller took third place, finishing just 0.17 seconds behind Stin Olsen.
