Swiss ski racer Marco Odermatt celebrated a double victory in Kranjska Gora, Slovenia. After the success in the first giant slalom on Saturday, the 25-year-old also won the second on Sunday and thus secured the overall success in his flagship discipline, in which he is also Olympic champion and world champion. At the finish he was 0.32 seconds ahead of second-placed Norwegian Henrik Kristoffersen. Third was the Frenchman Alexis Pinturault.
Odermatt had already been confirmed as another overall World Cup winner before the two races. His first pursuer in the classification, the Norwegian Aleksander Aamodt Kilde, who specializes in the speed disciplines, did not compete in the World Cups in Slovenia and can no longer catch him at the season finale in Andorra starting on Wednesday.
None of the German athletes made it into the second round on Sunday. Stefan Luitz had knee problems after his crash on Saturday and therefore did not start in the second race. He hopes not to be more seriously injured, but will be checked again, said the 30-Year-old.
For Alexander Schmid, currently the best German giant slalom skier, the season had already ended due to injury.
