FIS Alpine Ski World Championships, Schladming 2013: Men’s Giant Slalom, Ligety 3x World Champion!
Ted Ligety, USA – 2013 Giant Slalom World Champion
xxxxxMarcel Hirscher of Austria, 2nd place. Ted Ligety of USA, 1st place. Manfred Moelgg of Italy, 3rd place.
I love how they announced the start of Ted’s runs with “It’s Ligety time”. Yes, it was. It is. Not since Jean-Claude Killy in 1968 – 45 years ago – has there been a triple world champion — incredible. Congratulations, Ted!

FIS Alpine Ski World Championships, Schladming 2013: Men’s Super Combined, Ligety Wins Again!
Ted Ligety, USA – 2013 Super Combined World Champion
xIvica Kostelic of Croatia, 2nd place. Ted Ligety of USA, 1st place. Romed Baumann of Austria, 3rd place.
Ligety wins! A slalom run of a lifetime, I’d say – coming from .72 back to win by 1.15 seconds. This makes Ted a double World Champ – winning gold in both events he has raced so far!

Schladming 2013: FIS Alpine Ski World Championships
Schladming, Austria is host to the 2013 FIS Alpine World Championships. Located in Styria in the heart of the country, this event is being called the Ski Festival with Heart. The ebullient mood seems to be equal parts Austrian national ski pride and regional culture.
I am arriving a few days in, after both Super G races — missing the drama of Lindsey Vonn’s season-ending crash, as well as the excitement of Ted Ligety’s gold medal in his first-ever Super G win! So for the next couple weeks, AlpineStyle56 will feature an extra big dose of ski racing action and inspiration. . .
Medals will be awarded for eleven events over fourteen days.
Schladming, with neighboring Haus/Ennstal, hosted the Alpine World Championships once before in 1982.
All races will be held on two slopes with a combined finish arena.
The voestalpine skygate, a stunning 35 meter high steel arch, adds to the drama of the finish.
