New Swiss National Champion Marco Odermatt

New Swiss National Champion Marco Odermatt

sThe first age, in the age of the Internet, everything has to go fast and fast. Some things still look especially valuable even after a few days. For example, I prefer a 59-second video as the five-month time-lapse of the ski season. Marco Odermatt dedicates himself to his past time in the snow via Instagram These Sunny Days and concludes: “It was amazing.”

In the framework of victories in the opening match of the season in Sölden at the end of October and victory in the World Cup final on Saturday in Courchevel, the Swiss achieved not everything he saved, but the most important thing: the Olympic victory in the giant slalom, the victory in the overall World Cup. In addition, there were the small ball in the giant slalom, the second place in the World Cup Super-G and the highest results in the downhill.

Old news? impossible. The 24-year-old from Nidwald is already looking forward to next season. Three years ago, someone who should have known predicted his successes. Marcel Hirscher, who dominated the Alpine Skiing World Cup like never before, predicted at the time: “He can be anything, the overall World Cup winner, the Olympic champion, whatever he wants.” And the Dermatt, multi-level, Swiss army knife, so to speak, I liked it. Even if he says about himself: “It was not really a dream. But now it is as if.”

Little Marco was on skates for the first time when he was just over two years old. His father Walter, who participates in the Nidwald Ski Association, put it on her head. At the age of three and a half, the little boy was already mastering the difficult slopes. The difference between other children? “Marco is not afraid,” Walter Odermatt told New Zealand recently. If Marco falls, he gets up, flicks the snow and continues riding.
