Dec. 19 (Bloomberg) -- Austria’s Marcel Hirscher won the men’s slalom in Alta Badia, Italy today to move atop the overall World Cup skiing standings.

Hirscher, 22, clocked 1 minute, 47.16 seconds over two legs to beat Olympic slalom champion Giuliano Razzoli of Italy by 0.56 seconds. Germany’s Felix Neureuther was third.

The Austrian tops the standings with 425 points, while second-place Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway, who crashed on today’s first leg, has 416 points. In the slalom competition he leads Croatia’s Ivica Kostelic by 15 points.

Hirscher now has five career World Cup wins, including in a giant slalom at Beaver Creek, Colorado this month.
