Men FIS Ski World Cup Overall Title Update

The Men’s FIS Ski World Cup Overall title was a two-man battle between Marcel Hirscher and Kjetil Jansrud for most of the season.

But with his last victory at Garmisch-Partenkirchen Hirscher increased the gap between himself and the Norwegian in the chase for the Overall title, with eight races to go there are 188 points separating the two.
It was the 30th career World Cup win for Marcel Hirscher and his 14th in GS. It is his eighth win of the season including gold in alpine combined at the World Championships.

Meanwhile, Kjetil Jansrud can’t be too pleased with his 19th-place result in the Garmisch Downhill. The result certainly doesn’t help Jansrud’s chances in the overall title chase with Marcel Hirscher. In fact, with two races remaining and an 84-point lead over Reichelt in the downhill standings, the discipline title is now also in play as the season draws to a close.With Sunday’s victory, Hirscher came also very close to securing this year’s GS title as with only two races left in the calendar he has a 188 points advantage over Ted Ligety.
With only three weeks of races left, the Overall title will be decided on the final day.
