Mar­cel Hirscher, a six-time over­all World Cup cham­pion, won the men’s alpine com­bined slalom at the Pyeongchang Games. In Jeongseon, Hirscher’s com­bined two-run time was 0.23 se­conds faster than sil­ver medal­list Alexis Pin­tu­rault of France. The 28-year-old Aus­trian is a three-time Olympian who had pre­vi­ously won only a sil­ver medal de­spite never fin­ish­ing be­low fifth in any race. “I’m su­per happy be­cause now this stupid ques­tion has gone away, if I’m think­ing that my ca­reer is perfect with­out a gold medal,” Hirscher said.
