I'll be back

Marco out02

Marco Odermatt, who injured his right knee on 22 December 2019, already underwent successful surgery on the following Monday afternoon.

The check-ups at Balgrist university clinic resulted in a fracture to the outer meniscus. The 22-year-old athlete was then operated on by PD Dr. med. Sandro Fucentese, with an arthroscopic partial removal of the right outer meniscus.

“Last season was fantastic for me. I managed to get into the top ten in the giant slalom five times and I was even on the podium twice. That’s something I hadn’t thought possible at the beginning of the season, and the summer was just as positive for me. I trained hard and well with Swiss Ski and even managed to get a few days off for the necessary physical and mental rest, thanks to good scheduling and support from my team. Recently, I've been asked lots of times, sometimes even with rather a euphoric tone, about my goals for the 2019/2020 season. Sure, you can always ask :-)

A “quiet” time


It’s already been a number of weeks since my last ski day. Partly, of course, because spring is slowly arriving, but also because, as you probably know, my ski season had to be cut short due to my (slight) knee injury. The timing of this mild tear to the meniscus of my right knee could actually have been worse. I only missed the Swiss Championships on the Stoos and Hoch-Ybrig and, in fairness, a few worthwhile training and practice days.

But in the last few weeks of the ski season, I was anything but bored. My weekly programme was filled almost to the brim with lots of physio appointments and sponsor events. I was able to attend cool events like the Stöckli Day or the Wings for Life World Run, get involved and gain some fantastic lasting impressions as a result.

A crazy season

I was able to gain a really strong footing in the World Cup this season thanks to my excellent team (Swiss Ski, my suppliers, service man, physios and management) as well as ongoing support from my sponsors. I had set myself the realistic goal at the beginning of the season of establishing myself in the top 30 in the giant slalom, my specialist discipline, so I’m overjoyed and still pinching myself a bit today to be able to say that I am actually number 7 in the giant slalom World Cup starting list. I’m nevertheless still keeping my feet very firmly on the ground.
