Aleksander Aamodt Kilde is a powerful athlete and one of the best skiers in the world.
Aleksander Aamodt Kilde, Norwegian alpine skier, won the World Cup super-G ranking in 2016 by becoming the youngest skier to win it.
His consistency in the 2019-2020 season makes him the successor to Marcel Hirscher (eight-time winner of the big crystal globe, continuously from 2012 to 2019) in the overall World Cup standings.
While he is again in contention for the big globe in 2020-2021, he injured his knee during training in mid-January and had to end his season. He returned in the 2021-2022 season to regain his place among the best in the speed events by winning seven World Cup races, two Olympic medals and the small globes in Super-G and Downhill. The 2023 Worlds will obviously be a highlight for him!
Aleksander in numbers:
1 big globe
3 small globes
29 podiums including 13 victories
2 Olympic medals
