Marcel Hirscher wasn't happy with just the Crystal Globe, he wanted the final Giant Slalom of the year in Aspen, too. And he got it.


The last men’s Giant Slalom of the year has been won by Marcel Hirscher, the Austrian who has dominated the event all season, and whose Crystal Globe is his fourth in a row.

He has also cemented his sixth consecutive overall World Cup title. This was his 45th world cup win, and his 22nd in the Giant.

Felix Neureuther had held the whip hand after the first run, but Hirscher made light of the handicap to finish nearly a second ahead of the German in a dramatic reversal of fortune.
