Marco Odermatt misses the Hahnenkamm downhill on Saturday.


From the Swiss point of view it is the biggest shocker of this World Cup winter! The seven-time winner of the season, Marco Odermatt, falls into a serious reserve after a blow on the steep slope. Thanks to his outstanding body control, the Nidwaldner can prevent a fall. After crossing the finish line, however, it quickly becomes apparent that the overall World Cup winner did not survive this action unscathed.

“Marco’s condition worries me, he left the finish area limping and with a pained face in the direction of the hotel,” groans Swiss Ski Marketing Manager Diego Züger. The 25-year-old is first examined by the physiotherapist at the Hotel Schweizerhof. The native of Austria believes that the meniscus is bruised. Before Odermatt has an MRI done on his knee at the hospital in Innsbruck, his name will be removed from the start list for the original Hahnenkamm downhill on Saturday. “Marco’s knee definitely needs a few days’ rest now,” explains Beni Matti, race director at Odermatt’s outfitter Stöckli.
