Hirscher wins again, clinches World Cup GS title

Double Olympic champion Marcel Hirscher secured the World Cup Giant Slalom title with victory at Kranjska Gora.

After skiing out of the Slalom at PyeongChang, Hirscher returned to winning ways to secure his fifth GS crown and his 15th in all.

The win sees the Austrian move a step closer to his seventh consecutive World Cup overall title.

Majestic Marcel

Hirscher was utterly dominant in Slovenia.

The 28-year-old was almost three-quarters of a second clear of Norway’s Henrik Kristoffersen after the first run.

And he was the same margin clear of the field on the second run.

Just as in the PyeongChang GS, Kristoffersen was a long way behind in second place.

The margin in Korea was 1.27 seconds, today it was a massive 1.66 seconds.

France’s Alexis Pinturault, second behind Hirscher in the Combined in PyeongChang, took third place.

Hirscher will bid to complete a double in Kranjska Gora in the slalom on Sunday.
