Alpine Skiing – Marco Odermat won the Super-G in Salbakh. He won 62 hundred ahead of Frenchman Matthew Bailey. World champion Vincent Critchmeyer lost eight tenths in the third.
Odermat celebrated his third World Cup victory, second in Super-G, in Beaver Creek, Colorado, last December. A year later he won in a giant slalom for the first time in Santa Catarina.
In the overall World Cup standings, Odermatt made a lot of ground in a duel with Alexis Pinturault. The Frenchman, who finished fifteenth in Salbakh, is 81 points ahead of his first opponent. The rest of the event this winter includes six races, two giant slalom and two slams as well as a downhill and a super-G. The decision in the Super G World Cup has also been deferred. Critchmeyer led the rankings ahead of the final at Lenzerheide with 83 points.
Justin Muricier and Beat Fauz also performed well. Murisier shocked with a starting number 40 in the fifth position. Wallace, who competed in the World Cup for the sixth time in this discipline, scored his first point in Super-G. Feuz was placed in Super-G, which was better than two years. At that time he was third in the Quitfjel.
It has been more than ten years since the Swiss men’s team was last represented in the World Cup Super-G with the winner along with two other drivers in the top six. Tobias Gruenfelder won at Lake Lewis, Canada in late November 2010, ahead of Carlo Janca, Didier Kuche was fifth.
