JEONGSEON, South Korea - One of the greatest skiers of all time is finally an Olympic champion.

Austria's Marcel Hirscher, a six-time overall World Cup champion, won the men's combined at the Pyeongchang Games on Tuesday, using his silky skills in the slalom leg to rise from 12th place after the opening run of the downhill.

Now a three-time Olympian, the 28-year-old Hirscher until now had only won a silver medal despite never finishing lower than fifth in any race.
