    Mario Matt of Austria won the men's slalom Saturday, becoming the oldest Alpine champion in Olympic history. Leading after the first run, Matt glided through the slushy course in a combined time of 1 minute, 41.84 seconds. Austrian teammate Marcel Hirscher turned in a fast second run to take silver, 0.28 behind, and teenager Henrik Kristoffersen of Norway captured bronze. Matt, who turns 35 in April, surpasses now-retired Norwegian great Kjetil Andre Aamodt as the oldest Alpine skier to win gold.
