Hirscher looks to win slalom as ski worlds draw to close
ARE, Sweden (AP) - Mikaela Shiffrin defied illness to win the slalom at the skiing world championships. Can Marcel Hirscher do the same?
Hirscher, the seven-time overall World Cup champion, will start as the favorite for the last medal event of these championships, even though he is still nursing a cold he picked up midway through the week.
Feeling under the weather, the Austrian finished second behind Henrik Kristoffersen in the giant slalom on Friday. They trained together on Saturday.
If Hirscher wins the slalom for a third time, he will move on to seven career golds at the worlds - tying the men's record with compatriot Toni Sailer from the late 1950s.
