FIS Alpine World Cup history was made in Adelboden as eight-time overall champion Marcel Hirscher claimed victory in the slalom.
Marcel Hirscher made FIS Alpine World Cup history in Adelboden on Sunday as he won a record ninth race at the same resort.
Hirscher is enjoying another stellar season as he looks to claim an eighth overall globe in a row, the Austrian’s latest success his ninth of the current World Cup schedule.
The 29-year-old trailed Henrik Kristoffersen by 0.05 seconds after the first run but turned on the style in the second to take victory by half a second from Clement Noel, with Kristoffersen having to settle for third.
It sees the slalom specialist set a new record in one resort, moving past Ingemar Stenmark’s tally in Madonna di Campiglio, Axel Lund Svindal’s eight wins in Lake Louise and Hirscher’s own total in Alta Badia.
