New Zealand para skier Adam Hall has won gold at the World Cup slalom event in Kuhtai, Austria.

Hall won the men’s slalom standing with the fastest overall time of 1:43.19. The result comes off the back of his silver-winning performance yesterday.

Neutral athlete Alexander Alyabyev and Sweden’s Aaron Lindstrom shared second place, both clocking the same overall time of 1:44.14.

“It was another great day of racing, going one better than yesterday” said Hall.

“I have had four pretty consistent race runs over the last two days and performed pretty well. It has all really worked out how I had imagined. When that happens it’s all pretty special.”

Hall said the results provide a valuable performance benchmark with the 2018 Paralympic Winter Games only a few months away.

“It’s been great to get this benchmark early in the season and leave Europe with a bit of a statement. We will fly away from Europe having learned a lot and will continue to work on even better performances heading into the games.”

Hall is one of four athletes representing New Zealand at the Paralympics in South Korea in March, along with New Plymouth’s Corey Peters, Aaron Ewen of Auckland and snowboarder Carl Murphy of Wanaka.
