ROAD TO SOCHI
In February 2013, Ligety became only the fourth man – and the first in 45 years – to win three gold medals at a single world championships, taking home titles in the super-G, super combined and giant slalom. He finished the 2012-13 World Cup season ranked third overall and first in giant slalom after winning a historic six out of eight giant slalom races on the year. He continued his momentum into the 2013-14 season, earning 10 consecutive world cup giant slalom podiums – the second-longest streak in world cup history. Making his third Olympic appearance, Ligety is poised to return to the Olympic podium after winning gold at the Turin 2006 Games.
