Marcel Hirscher Dominates with World Cup GS Win in Val d'Isere

 

 

It was an impressive win for Austrian Marcel Hirscher at the World Cup Grand Slalom in Val d'Isere last weekend. 

Hirscher attacked the resort's famous Face de Bellevarde slope with vigour, leaning into each turn and shaving precious split seconds off his rivals' times. 

In the end he put a full 1.29 seconds between him and second place-holder Felix Neureuther, claiming a record fifth win in the international competition. 

Fresh from victory at the giant slalom in Beaver Creek in Colorado, Hirscher continues to dominate his rival athletes - taking risks and pushing his body through turns other skiers just can't seem to manage.
