LENZERHEIDE (Switzerland) – In a combined time of one minute and 52.20 seconds, Felix Neureuther beat Marcel Hirscher by 0.36 seconds to take some revenge for being beaten into silver by the Austrian at last month’s world championships in Schladming. From the 2013 FIS World Cup ski racing results of Germany’s men alpine racing team, Neureuther accounted for seven of the German nine World Cup medals, three of which were gold.

Neureuther’s parents are both former World Cup ski racers, members of the West German team in the 1970s. His father is Christian Neureuther, winner of 6 World Cup slaloms, and his mother is Rosi Mittermaier, a World, Olympic, and World Cup champion, all in 1976.
