Hirscher, Fenninger aim for World Cup double
LENZERHEIDE, Switzerland (AP) After Austria easily topped the Alpine skiing medals table at the Sochi Olympics, Marcel Hirscher and Anna Fenninger aim to put the ”Wunderteam” back on top of the World Cup standings.
Not since 2002 have the Austrians held both the men’s and women’s overall titles, but Hirscher and Fenninger can achieve that at the World Cup Finals this week.
That would match the achievement of Austrian duo Stephan Eberharter and Michaela Dorfmeister 12 years ago.
The last time one nation swept the overall titles was Bode Miller and Lindsey Vonn for the United States in 2008.
