Marielle Thompson of Canada secured her third consecutive World Cup gold medal in women’s ski cross on Sunday in Georgia. This recent victory marks her fourth win in five races and she leads the season standings. As the reigning Olympic silver medallist, Thompson’s impressive performance in her 132nd World Cup start earned her 65th World Cup podium and 29th career victory.

Thompson reflected on her achievement by saying, “I tried to be better each run today and to ski clean the whole way down. I learned from last year at the world championships here that small mistakes can make you lose speed very quickly.” She emphasized the importance of the start and focused on quick and powerful movements at the gate to propel her forward throughout the race.

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