Marco Odermatt Wins Beaver Creek Super-G


22-year-old Swiss talent Marco Odermatt claims Beaver Creek’s Super-G, scoring his first World Cup victory. Aleksander Aamodt Kilde (NOR) came second (+0.10) and Matthias Mayer (AUT) third (+0.14) for a very close finish. Odermatt skied well on the technical course, taking the right amount of risk without compromising the speed of his run. It’s the first World Cup win for the young Swiss skier, whose best result in Super-G was last week’s 7th place in Lake Louise. His other two podiums were both achieved during last season, both in Giant Slalom. Aleksander Aamodt Kilde also showed a very strong performance and was leading in all the splits until he made a mistake in the final section, causing him to finish second. Matthias Mayer continues his positive streak after winning the last Super-G race in Lake Louise and thanks to this third place, he continues leading the overall ranking with 221 points, 41 points ahead of Dominik Paris (ITA).
