Ambassadors and Longines personalities

Marco Odermatt

The Swiss alpine skiing prodigy wears the colours of Longines since 2019

In the Longines Family since the 2019, Marco Odermatt has set himself apart as one of the best skiers of his generation. Following his first competition at the age of 4, the young athlete, from the canton of Nidwald, quickly joins the Hergiswil Ski Club, where he develops his talent. 

In 2016, Marco makes his FIS Alpine World Cup debut in Saint-Moritz, and claims his first Junior World Championship title in giant slalom, along with a bronze medal in Super-G in Sochi’s Junior World Ski Championships the same year. 

In 2018, the young athlete wins no fewer than five gold medals in the Junior World Ski Championship, held in Davos, Switzerland (downhill, Super-G, giant slalom, combined, team event), making him the second best junior skier in history. 

Following his first two World Cup podiums in giant slalom, in Kranjska Gora and Soldeu in the 2019/2020 season, he claims his first World Cup title the next season, in Super-G, in Beaver Creek. 

Since then, Marco has been enjoying a string of successes, with notably an impressive second place in Super-G in Kitzbühel during the 2020/2021 season.
