Mario Matt Of Austria Wins Olympic Slalom

Mario Matt of Austria won the men's slalom Saturday, becoming the oldest Alpine champion in Olympic history. Leading after the first run, Matt glided through the slushy course in a combined time of 1 minute, 41.84 seconds. Austrian teammate Marcel Hirscher turned in a fast second run to take silver, 0.28 behind, and teenager Henrik Kristoffersen of Norway captured bronze. Matt, who turns 35 in April, surpasses now-retired Norwegian great Kjetil Andre Aamodt as the oldest Alpine skier to win gold.
