Highlights of Day 9 at the Pyeongchang Olympics

Norway also won the 4x10km men's cross country relay to reach nine gold medals and draw level with Germany at the top of medals table.It has been a long wait for Games gold for Hirscher, who is the dominant figure of World Cup racing but whose best previous Olympic result was slalom silver in 2014.

While America's Shiffrin and Vonn look to recover from defeats, Hirscher hit his groove in the men's giant slalom, winning by an impressive 1.27sec - five days after his debut Olympic victory in the combined.

Pircher urged Hirscher to take the most direct line possible down the relatively benign and straight course at the Yongpyong Alpine Centre on Sunday, advice that paid off with a gold.

He is also the defending giant slalom world champion and he can add to his Pyeongchang medal haul in his favorite event, the slalom, on Thursday.

"Today I told him you have to go straight", Pircher said.

'At the moment, I'm pumped!' Hirscher said after claiming his second gold medal.

"It didn't work out for me, which is a bummer", said Kenworthy, who had become a strong, steady voice in the LGBT community. But on Sunday, he said none of that was bothering him. "The only way to really change perceptions, to break down barriers, break down homophobia, is through representation. I think if I had, it would've made it easier for me".

Alex Beaulieu-Marchand of Canada won the bronze.

They were denied gold by the masterful Norwegian skiers, who seized the lead through Simen Hegstad Krueger in the third leg before Johannes Hoesflot Klaebo sealed victory.

Of the eight golds awarded in cross-country events in Pyeongchang, Norway has all but three. The Norwegians have won 11 overall medals in cross country, two off the record set by the Soviet Union in Calgary in 1988.

Abramenko scored a 128.51 on his third and final jump, edging out China's Zongyang Jia by just 0.46 points.

Russian Federation was banned from the Games after the emergence of systemic doping, but it was allowed to send 168 athletes deemed clean to compete as neutrals.

"After the first run I thought to myself that the confidence is here and speed is here and I can win the race".

Ligety's four giant slalom triumphs at World Championships and Olympic Winter Games combined are a joint-record among men and women, alongside Italian great Deborah Compagnoni. It followed his earlier fifth place in the alpine combined, and a failure to finish the super-G.

It was a reversal for Fourcade, who had taken silver in a dramatic finish to the same event in Sochi four years ago.
