Men’s Slalom World Championships

The last race of the FIS Alpine World Ski Championship had a thrilling scenario as none of the four fastest racers after the opening slalom run managed to hold on to their positions and saw Jean-Baptiste Grange of France claim the World title.

 

 

Defending Champion Marcel Hirscher of Austria put himself in the position to collect another medal after posting the fastest time in the first run leading Alexander Khoroshilov of Russia by 0.28 seconds, Andre Myhrer of Sweden by 0.66 seconds and another Swede Mattias Hargin by 0.85 seconds. Jean-Babptise Grange, who was fifth after the first run, 0.88 seconds out, delivered a moment of magic coming down the course and recording the fastest time of the second run. Khoroshilov, Myhere and Hargin all failed to match Grange’s time, while Hirscher did not finish.

 

 

Grange captured his second career World title in a combined time of 1:57.47. Rounding out the podium finally was two germans, Fritz Dopfer with +0.35 and Felix Neureuther with +0.55 earning respectively silver and bronze.

 

 

This concluded two weeks of intense action that crowned fantastic champions. The World Cup athletes will now head back to Europe for their next World Cup races. The season goes on!
