And in the end, Marcel Hirscher wins. Incredible 3rd slalom win in a row for the Austrian, who equals Alberto Tomba in third place of all time with 50 World Cup victories. Congrats also to Michael Matt and Henrik Kristoffersen for rounding out the podium.
The World Cup has a new Snow King! After 8 years of victory drought, Manfred Moelgg claimed the win at the slalom in Zagreb, ahead of Felix Neureuther and Henrik Kristoffersen. A firework for both the new crowned king and the 50 years of the FIS Ski World Cup concluded the “Snow Queen Trophy” in the Croatian venue.
Like with teams and athletes, the foundation for a successful winter are made in the summer. One part of the preparation for the FIS team is the official FIS inspection that takes place at almost every World Cup venue.
