Canadian Ski Cross Champion Marielle Thompson Takes Third Consecutive World Cup Gold: Emphasizes Importance of Start and Focused Movement

Marielle Thompson of Canada made history on Sunday in Georgia, securing her third consecutive World Cup gold medal in women’s ski cross. The reigning Olympic silver medallist had a successful weekend, winning two gold medals and leading the season standings. This recent victory marks her fourth win in five races.

Reflecting on her achievement, Thompson said, “I tried to be better each run today and to ski clean the whole way down.

Thompson’s impressive performance earned her 65th World Cup podium and 29th career victory. Joining her on the podium were France’s Marielle Berger Sabbatel and Switzerland’s Talina Gantenbein, who won silver and bronze, respectively. India Sherret of Cranbrook, B.C., finished fourth in the final, adding to Canada’s strong showing in the competition. The event showcased Thompson’s skill and determination, solidifying her status as a top contender in the women’s ski cross circuit.
