After a consistent season, the 26-year-old prevailed in the final ahead of his compatriot Arvid Auner. The chairman also got the small crystal ball in the parallel slalom. The chairman beat Benjamin Karl in the round of 16, overall candidate Andreas Prommegger in the quarterfinals and Rok Marguc (SLO), the fastest in the qualification, in the semifinals. All of this was also made possible by Auner’s victory over the Italian Maurizio Bormolini in the round of 16. In the final, the chairman was only five hundredths faster than Auner, and there was no talk of a stable order in the ÖSV.

“I didn’t know that it was even possible today. I’m at a loss for words,” explained a joyfully crying chairman in the finish interview with the FIS.

In the women’s category, Sabine Schöffmann made it to the semi-finals, where she had to bow to Ester Ledecka in her second race of the season. The Czech thus achieved a successful revenge for the giant slalom final on Wednesday in Rogla. In the small final for third place, Schöffmann from Carinthia lost to Cheyenne Loch from Germany. Ledecka won the final, preventing her final opponent Ramona Hofmeister from winning overall. The Swiss Julie Zogg, who was eliminated in the quarter-finals, got the parallel and the overall World Cup bullet.
