Odermat's dominance is total, he won his third World Cup in a row

The 26-year-old Odermatt took first place with a combined time of 2:11.69 minutes over the two heats. This proved to be enough for him to win the World Cup for the third season in a row. Ten starts before the end, the Swiss has 1702 points, which is exactly 1001 points more than the asset of the second Manuel Feller from Austria. In theory, Feller could earn 1,000 points in the remaining ten races, but even those won't be enough to overtake Odermatt for the Grand Crystal Globe.

The unique streak of the Swiss in the giant slalom swelled to 10 consecutive successes, after the poop in Palisades Tahoe managed to overtake Henrich Kristoffersen (Norway) by 12 hundredths. The home team's ace River Radamus finished third at 1.37 seconds.

Odermat also became the third skier in history to have at least 10 consecutive victories in one discipline. The record is held by Ingemar Stenmark with 14 (1978-1979) again in the giant slalom, and Austria's Annemarie Moser-Pröhl has 11 in the downhill (1972-1974).

The Swiss leads in three classifications in the individual disciplines - downhill, super-G and giant slalom. In all three, Odermatt is an almost certain winner. /BGNES
