Canada’s Marielle Thompson Reigns Supreme in World Cup Ski Cross Race, Marking Fourth Win in Five Starts

Canada’s Marielle Thompson secured her third consecutive World Cup women’s ski cross gold medal in Georgia, capping off a successful weekend for the Whistler, B.C., native. This victory marked her fourth win in five races and solidified her position as the reigning Olympic silver medallist and leader in the season standings.

In her 132nd World Cup start, Thompson managed to win all her heats, earning her 65th World Cup podium and 29th career victory. Reflecting on her performance, Thompson stated, “I tried to be better each run today and to ski clean the whole way down.” She emphasized the importance of learning from past experiences and avoiding small mistakes that could lead to a loss of speed.

Thompson’s success was largely due to her focus on starting strong. She explained how she focused on being quick and powerful out of the gate, which ultimately led to her victory. Joining her on the podium were France’s Marielle Berger Sabbatel and Switzerland’s Talina Gantenbein, who secured the silver and bronze medals, respectively.

India Sherret of Cranbrook, B.C., finished just outside of the podium in fourth place. This impressive performance solidifies Canada’s presence as a force to be reckoned with in women’s ski cross. Sherret’s performance highlights Canada’s growing strength in this discipline and their potential for continued success in future competitions.
