Marcel Hirscher Wins First Olympic Gold in Men's Combined

Six times Overall winner Marcel Hirscher won pretty much everything that you can win in alpine skiing, and today he grabbed that one missing trophy: an Olympic Gold Medal. Today, his dream came true and the Austrian can finally call himself an Olympic Champion. The strong French team earned the two other spots on the podium, placing Alexis Pinturault and Victor Muffat-Jeandet as a silver and bronze medallist.
Marcel Hirscher (AUT) became the fifth man to win an Olympic and world title in a men's combination event on Tuesday 13 February at the Jeongseon Alpine Centre. After a very strong downhill run, where he was only +1.32 behind the Kitzbuehel winner Thomas Dressen, Hirscher laid down one of his impressive slalom runs to take the win.
