Lyne finishes top 40 in Slalom

February 22, 2014

Ireland’s Conor Lyne has officially  finished 40th of 117 competitors in this evenings men’s slalom event in Rosa Khutor Alpine Centre.

The event was won by Mario Matt, a surprise winner as he became the oldest Alpine champion in Olympic history, edging pre-race favorite and teammate Marcel Hirscher.

Leading after the first run, Matt glided through the slushy course in a combined time of 1 minute, 41.84 seconds in the last Alpine event of the Sochi Olympics. Hirscher finished 0.28 seconds behind for silver and teenager Henrik Kristoffersen of Norway captured bronze, 0.83 behind.
