Kostelic Misses Out As Austrian Takes World Cup Slalom In Zagreb

More than 13,000 fans turned up to support Croatian Ivica Kostelic when the World Cup men’s slalom took place on Zagreb’s Mount Sljeme yesterday, but the former champion Croat could only manage 8th place after defending champion Marcel Hirscher from Austria won his 3rd World Cup slalom for the season.

Andre Myher of Sweden finished in second place, with Austria’s Mario Matt in third place. The Zagreb leg of the World Cup was televised live in 25 countries, including Eurosport Asia, Eurosport International and ESPN.
