As Ski Season Opens, Austrian Marcel Hirscher Seeks 4th Straight Title
Hirscher has had three great seasons in a row, and now he is trying to do what no other man has done: win four straight World Cup overall titles.
Women's alpine World Cup starts without favorite (The Associated Press)
With four different winners over the past four years, the women's Alpine skiing World Cup lacks a clear favorite for the overall title just before the start of the new season. Lindsey Vonn and Maria Hoefl-Riesch used to be safe bets for the top two spots. Germany's Hoefl-Riesch, who was the 2011 champion, has retired. Defending champion Anna Fenninger of Austria is likely to face stiff competition again from the likes of Lara Gut, Tina Weirather and Tina Maze.
