Sweden's Andre Myhrer Wins Alpine Ski Racing Slalom at Levi, Finland

By November 12, 2012

Follow me on:

Defending World Cup slalom champion Andre Myhrer of Sweden won the men's Audi World Cup Slalom in Levi, Finland by a slim .06 margin over reigning overall champion Marcel Hirscher of Austria.

Three-time Audi FIS Alpine World Cup giant slalom champion Ted Ligety, who was victorious in the opening World Cup race at Soelden, Austria two weeks ago, finished 13th. Also for the U.S.A. Will Brandenburg landed 15th while David Chodounsky skied out in the second run and Nolan Kasper did not qualify for the top 30 final.

The Americans return to Colorado this week for Nature Valley First Tracks, the 2013 U.S. Ski Team Announcement slated for Nov. 15 at Vail.

The U.S. men will prep for the opening of the speed season at Lake Louise, AB and Beaver Creek with a block of training at the U.S. Ski Team Speed Center at Copper Mountain. The annual Audi Birds of Prey race week is scheduled for Nov. 30-Dec. 2 in Beaver Creek.
