Snowboard sensation: Fabian Obmann wins the overall World Cup

That really wasn’t to be expected. Not even the surprise winner himself had hoped to win the overall World Cup in Berchtesgaden.

Fabian Obmann not only managed his first victory at the World Cup final of the raceboarders in Berchtesgaden, but also sensationally the overall World Cup victory in snowboarding.

Another bullet in the slalom

After a consistent season, the 26-year-old prevailed in the final ahead of his compatriot Arvid Auner. The chairman also got the small crystal ball in the parallel slalom.

“I didn’t know it was even possible today. Words fail me,” explained a winner crying with joy in the first interview.

Everything fits together

The chairman beat Benjamin Karl in the round of 16, overall candidate Andreas Prommegger in the quarterfinals and Rok Marguc (SLO), the fastest in the qualification, in the semifinals. All of this was also made possible by Auner’s victory over the Italian Maurizio Bormolini in the round of 16.
