(MENAFN - Kora) The Austrian finished fourth in Saturday's giant slalom and that result, combined with Aksel Lund Svindal failing to finish, left Hirscher 31 points clear at the top of the standings



Svindal would still have had a chance to catch him had he competed in the slalom, but it was confirmed on Saturday that the Norwegian would not take to the starting gate - having skipped the discipline all season - which gives the title to Hirscher



"I'm really happy about the overall and am not really thinking about the giant slalom cup at this point," an elated Hirscher, who can also win the slalom individual title on Sunday, told fis-ski.com



"The overall was my big goal this season and I couldn't be happier that I was able to defend it



"I have to thank my team, I might not have been the easiest to deal with sometimes during the season but they have supported me all along.



For Svindal the result marked a disappointment, and the Norwegian admitted that his displays towards the end of the season had not been good enough



"I am not as good now as I was earlier this winter and it's something to look at and make sure it doesn't happen next year," he said



"With the two speed titles (downhill and super-G) I had a good season that could have been a great season.
