On Sunday, March 24, the ski racing community gathered for the final race of the season in Saalbach-Hinterglemm (Austria) and watched Marco Odermatt (Switzerland) being awarded the big Crystal Globe as the winner of the 2023-2024 Alpine Ski World Cup Overall title.

Marco Odermatt won the Overall, Downhill, Super-G, and Giant Slalom Globes.

The 26-year-old Swiss Ace has won the Overall Crystal Globe three consecutive times: 2021-2022, 2022-2023, and 2023-2024. He finished the 2023-2024 winter season with 9 Crystal Globes (3 Overall, 1 in Downhill, 2 in Super-G, and 3 in Giant Slalom).

The last man to win at least four World Cup Crystal Globes in a single season was Hermann Maier in 1999-2000 and 2001-2001 (Overall, Downhill, Giant Slalom, and Super-G in both seasons).

The only Swiss man to win at least four World Cup classifications in a single season was Pirmin Zurbriggen in 1986-1987. He won the Overall, Combination, Super-G, Downhill, and Giant Slalom titles.

With 13 wins Marco Odermatt has equaled the Men's record for most World Cup wins in a single season, set by Ingemar Stenmark (1978-1979), Hermann Maier (2000-2001), Marcel Hirscher (2017-2018), and Odermatt himself in 2022-2023.

Mikaela Shiffrin (17 in 2018-2019 and 14 in 2022-2023) and Vreni Schneider (14 in 1988-1989) are the only skiers to have won more than 13 races in one season.

Odermatt is the second skier - male or female - to have won nine World Cup events in a discipline in a single season. Ingemar Stenmark triumphed in all 10 Men's World Cup Giant Slaloms in 1978-1979.

This season Marco Odermatt achieved his first World Cup Downhill victory in the first race held in Wengen. Two days after he took the double win in the Lauberhorn. Before Odermatt, only Marc Girardelli has won in 1989 two Downhill races in Wengen in the same year.

Marco Odermatt is the benchmark of the Alpine Ski World Cup and in 2024 also takes on the leading role in Downhill after achieving this season his first victory in the discipline in Wengen, and the Crystal Globe at the Finals in Saalbach.

Marco Odermatt secured the Giant Crystal Globe in Aspen on March 1st. He was again the absolute dominator of the discipline. He is the reigning Olympic Champion, World Champion, and World Cup winner in the Men's Giant Slalom for the third consecutive time.

Marco Odermatt finished in fifth place in the last Super-G of the season in Saalbach securing the discipline Crystal Globe. He became the first male skier to win the Super-G Crystal Globe in successive seasons since Kjetil Jansrud won it in 2016-2017 and 2017-2018.
