Manfred Moelgg was all smiles as the Italian ended an eight year wait for another win on the Alpine skiing world cup circuit. Meolgg mastered the strong winds to win a slalom race in Zagreb for his first victory since February 2009. The 34-year-old was fifth fastest after the first run, but topped the field in the second for a combined winning time of just over two minutes. It was his third career World Cup win. Germany’s Felix Neureuther crossed over in second place seven tenths of a second behind. It was his second podium finish of this season after placing third in the Solden Giant slalom in October. Norway’s Henrik Kristoffersen completed the podium places with third.
