Ted Ligety wins Giant Slalom to make history at World Championships

FIS LogoTed Ligety’s winning has become historic, thanks to a victory in Giant Slalom on Friday (Feb. 15) that earned him his third gold at the FIS Alpine Ski World Championships in Schladming, Austria.

The medal means Ligety is the first man to win three golds (he previously won Super G and Super Combined) at a single World Championships in the modern era. He’s also making American ski history, since his four career gold medals at Worlds now ties him with Bode Miller for most overall.

Ligety, who has dominated Giant Slalom this season to the point he has been dubbed “Mr. GS,” locked up Friday’s race after securing a huge 1.30 second lead in the first run. He ultimately won by .81 over Marcel Hirscher and Manfred Moelgg. Norway’s Aksel Lund Svindal just missed a medal. Read more.
