Mikaela Shiffrin defied illness to win the slalom on the snowboarding world championships. Can Marcel Hirscher do the same?
Hirscher, the seven-time general World Cup champion, will begin as the favorite for the last medal event of these championships, despite the fact that he’s still nursing a cold he picked up halfway by way of the week.
Feeling underneath the weather, the Austrian completed second behind Henrik Kristoffersen in the big slalom on Friday. They educated collectively on Saturday.
If Hirscher wins the slalom for a third time, he will transfer on to seven profession golds on the worlds — tying the lads’s report with compatriot Toni Sailer from the late Nineteen Fifties.
