Kristoffersen wins maiden race


SCHLADMING - Young Norwegian skier Henrik Kristoffersen won his first ever World Cup r, taking the last slalom before next month's Winter Olympics. The 19-year-old -- who had three podium finishes to his name this season -- edged out Austrian Marcel Hirscher by 18 hundredths of a second while German Felix Neureuther was third another hundredth of a second slower. Kristoffersen's achievement was all the greater as Hirscher and Neureuther took world gold and silver respectively on the same course a year ago. Kristoffersen rose to joint second in the slalom standings which sees him and Neureuther trail Hirscher by 50 points. "This is unbelievable, I am so happy," he said. "I had bib number one, and I raced a really good first leg. In the second I was really good on the lower gates."–AFP
