Neureuther wins season-ending slalom


Felix Neureuther skied through the pain barrier to win the season-ending men’s slalom at the World Cup finals in Lenzerheide, Switzerland.

The German – who was suffering with a back problem – celebrated his third win of the winter in a combined time of one minute and 52.2 seconds.

The 28-year-old finished the season second in the slalom standings ending the campaign 244 points behind slalom champion Marcel Hirscher of Austria who was second in Lenzerheide.

Hirscher – who was crowned overall World Cup champion for the second straight year – was 0.36 seconds back as he maintained his consistency in the discipline winning five events and reaching the podium in all ten races he entered.
