     Última prova da temporada, decisão do overhall e ainda disputa sendo em casa; mas isso tudo não pareceu ser muita pressão para Marcel Hirscher da Áustria. Ele não só conquistou o overhall com também ficou com o 1° lugar no Giant Slalom durante Audi FIS World Cup - Men's Giant Slalom  em Schladming, Áustria. Porém a Áustria comemorou ainda mais, pois o pódio do Giant Slalom foi todo austríaco: Hannes Reichelt ficou com 2° lugar e Marcel Mathis ficou com o 3° lugar.

In my wildest dreams I couldn’t have imagined a day like today,” Hirscher said. “Winning the GS cup, winning today’s race and winning the Overall in front of this crowd- when I live just a few kilometers away... Having my two teammates on the podium feels just like a bonus. I am so, so happy and overwhelmed. This has been a hectic time for me and I was just trying to stay focused on my skiing, not let all that talk about the globes get to me. Everyone has been speculating about that crystal globe while for me it was still all just about winning races, I almost found it boring because at some point it seemed as if for everyone else but me it became more about the numbers than about skiing. Even now, things could still happen in theory and as long as I don’t have the Overall globe in my hands I will not get euphoric about it. I have a hard time believing it’s real.

Today I did not lose my first GS victory, today I owned an amazing 2nd place, Reichelt said. It’s great to be on the podium in such company. Times were so close today and I am glad to see we have such a strong team. When I train with these guys I know that if I’m fastest in training- I am capable of winning races. I might be the oldest on the podium today, it’s hard to keep up with these young guys but I like to think I am like wine- I get better with time. Now I have to concentrate on training and getting ready for next season- maybe than it will be my time for a GS victory.

I was already really happy with how things went in Bansko, I was surprised to say the least Mathis who is only 20 years old said. “But than to achieve this podium in front of my crowd is something special. I started my season setting my goals in the Europa Cup Tour, than things started going really well really past- I got a spot on the World Cup Tour and even landed two podiums. That was really, really unexpected. This race gives me so much confidence and motivation for the training we have lined up for the upcoming summer months.

       O dia foi especial não só para os austríacos, Didier Cuche da Suiça que anunciou essa temporada sua aposentadoria proporcionou um momento muito especial. É sempre um pouco triste ver um atleta de alto nível se aposentando, porém é sempre uma emoção ver tamanha alegria no aproveitamento nesses últimos momentos. E Didier Cuche merece.

 It was fun to come down the slope with some old skis today- in the past 40 or 60 years skiracing and material has gone so much forward. It’s a rollercoaster of emotions and even though I love the sport, I know I don’t have the motivation for all the aspects that need to be covered if I want to keep racing. It was time for me to go…
