Hirscher wins 2nd gold with giant slalom triumph

Marcel Hirscher

Austrian Alpine skiing great Marcel Hirscher won his second gold medal at the PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games as he claimed the men's giant slalom title here on Sunday. I mean, finishing fourth and fifth, it was OK.

"I just thought it would run a little bit more challenging than the way it did".

USA team coach Sasha Rearick said he was "super proud" of the way Ligety had battled back from a two-year hiatus just to get to the Games. He's shown that in the World Cup, but hadn't shown it in the Olympics.

"The older we get the better we are!" retorted Hirscher, hailing his performances as a result of a great team at their "peak".

Given Hirscher's status as a six-time defending overall World Cup champion, his continued dominance hasn't come as much of a shock.

"I was really surprised when I saw the time", Ligety said of his first run, according to the Washington Post's Rick Maese.

Cochran-Siegle crossed his second run at 1:09.99, placing 11th overall with a total time of 2:20.74.

Frenchman Alexis Pinturault was third, a further 0.04 seconds behind.

But Kristoffersen's late heroics were not quite enough for a second alpine Norwegian gold of the Olympics as his Austrian nemesis powered from the start gate to deliver yet another masterclass under pressure. But Ligety didn't look like one of the greatest slalom skiers in history. Despite the lead, I went all or nothing.

"Of course, I made some mistakes by attacking".

"Marcel's in his own league at the moment, we're fighting for silver and bronze for sure". The record for most gold medals in cross-country in a single Olympic Games is 13, set by the Soviet Union in Calgary in 1988.

"Ted has accomplished wonderful things, no athlete has won three golds at a championship event, no athlete has won at three world championships in a row", he said. He hasn't raced there since.

"I'm thankful about competing against him, even if I'm more (often) second than first". "It's an unfortunate day to have a bad day".

"Ski racing is a really tough sport to predict and truly plan for because you have such a small opportunity of window to show what you've got".
