NORWAY’S NEXT SUPERSTAR LOVES THE DIRECT LINE. HE JUST ARRIVED ON THE WORLD CUP SCENE AND ALREADY WON HIS FIRST CRYSTAL GLOBE.
Whatever the Norwegians are doing right: they are absolutely performing well! Aleksander Kilde Aamodt started as a no name but with premature praise from the big shots in the sport. Some might feel the pressure, but not the young hero Aleksander, who pumps weights usually requiring cranes. He only just arrived on the World Cup scene and has already claimed a Downhill (Garmisch) and a Super G (Hinterstoder) victory. With enough top results he even managed to take home the Super G World Cup win from St. Moritz. The early success powered by Atomic: as it was with Lasse Kjus, Aksel Lund Svindal and Kjetil Jansrud.
