Austrian Marcel Hirscher claimed his second Olympic gold of the Pyeongchang Games Sunday, showing all his class and experience to comprehensively win the men's giant slalom.Hirscher, who finally won an individual gold in the Alpine combined Tuesday after dominating the World Cup for the last six years, clocked an aggregate of 2 minutes, 18.04 seconds down the Rainbow 1 course at the Yongpyong Alpine Center.Norwegian Henrik Kristoffersen claimed silver, 1.27 seconds adrift of Hirscher, with France's Alexis Pinturault following up on his combined silver with bronze, a further four-hundredths back.That left him a very healthy 0.63 seconds ahead of closest rival Pinturault, Kristoffersen paying the price for a mistake to finish 10th, 1.31 seconds off the pace.When the Norwegian took to the slope for the second run, he raced down in the fastest time in an impressive display of aggressive skiing, 0.04 seconds faster than Hirscher's leg.
