Marco Odermatt finished 3rd, Vincent Kriechmayr winner – rts.ch

Marco Odermatt failed to secure a 1st Globe in Kvitfjell. Seventh in downhill, the Nidwalden must be satisfied with 3rd place in the super-G contested in Norway. Vincent Kriechmayr managed to delay the deadline by winning this race, in which Arnaud Boisset took 8th place.

Author of a 5th podium in 6 super-G contested this season, Odermatt nevertheless remains ideally placed in the fight for this little Globe which he has never won before. He is 81 points ahead of the Austrian with only one super-G left on the menu, Friday March 22 as part of the Saalbach finals.

Vincent Kriechmayer will therefore have no choice in Austria: he will have to win and hope that the best alpine skier on the planet finishes outside the top-15. A scenario that is difficult to imagine: since his 28th place in Kvitfjell in March 2022, Marco Odermatt has finished 15 super-Gs in a row among the top 4!

Boisset confirms

Marco Odermatt was only beaten by 0”19 by Vincent Kriechmayr on a shortened route due to freezing fog at the top. Everything came down to the bottom of the course, with the Austrian taking 0”33 from the Nidwalden and 0”49 from Jeffrey Read (2nd in the end, 0”17 behind) in the last 16 seconds of the race.

The 2nd best Helvetian was Arnaud Boisset (8th). The 25-year-old from Valais equaled his best result in the World Cup, established during the previous super-G in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, by conceding only 0”15 to Marco Odermatt and Dominik Paris (tied 3rd). This is his third top-10 at this level, the first having been signed on January 19 in Kitzbühel in downhill (9th).
