2014 Alpine Skiing World Cup

2014 World Cup Champions
Marcel Hirscher won the overall title for the third successive year, the first man to do so since Phil Mahre in 1983.
Anna Fenninger won the overall title for the first time.

The 48th FIS Alpine Ski World Cup season began on 26 October 2013, in Sölden, Austria, and concluded on 16 March 2014 at the World Cup finals in Lenzerheide, Switzerland.[1] The defending overall champions from the 2013 season were Marcel Hirscher of Austria and Tina Maze of Slovenia. The overall titles were won by Marcel Hirscher and Anna Fenninger, both of Austria. The season was interrupted by the 2014 Winter Olympics that took place from 7 to 23 February in Sochi, Russia, with the alpine events at Rosa Khutor.

Summary

The men's title was won by Marcel Hirscher for the third time in a row, becoming the first man to achieve this since Phil Mahre in 1983.[2] Hirscher secured the title after the second-to-last race of the season when he beat Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway, who did not compete in slalom.[3] Svindal won both the downhill (second time in a row) and super-G titles (third time in a row). The giant slalom title went to Ted Ligety of the United States. Ligety and Hirscher shared the same number of points but Ligety had more victories (4, as opposed to 2 by Hirscher).[4] This was Ligety's second consecutive giant slalom title and fifth overall. The slalom title went to Hirscher, who secured it in the last race of the season. The combined title was shared by Ligety and Alexis Pinturault of France, who each won a first and a second place in two combined races of the season.

Anna Fenninger of Austria won the overall women's title, for the first time. It was also the first time Austria won the women's cup since Nicole Hosp in 2007, and, together with Hirscher's win, the first time since 2002 that Austria won both titles.[5] Fenninger secured the title at the super-G race in Lenzerheide, since her main title rival, Maria Höfl-Riesch of Germany, suffered an injury at the Lenzerheide downhill race which ended her season.[6] At the end of the season, Höfl-Riesch announced her retirement from the active skiing career.[7] Höfl-Riesch won the downhill title, Lara Gut of Switzerland won the super-G title and also most races of the season (seven, followed by five of Mikaela Shiffrin of the United States, who also won the slalom title). The giant slalom title went to Fenninger who secured it in the last race. There was only one combined event in the 2014 season, which was won by Marie-Michèle Gagnon, who therefore also won the combined title. The 2013 overall champion, Maze of Slovenia, was less successful this year compared to her record-breaking 2013 season. She won one race and four more podiums, finishing fourth in the final standings. However, she stated that her main goal in the season were the Sochi Olympics, where she won two gold medals, in downhill and in giant slalom.[8] Tina Weirather of Liechtenstein was another strong performer, holding a second place before the Olympics, but suffered an injury in downhill training in Sochi and had to skip the rest of the season, finishing fifth overall.[9]
