Listen: Ted Ligety on GS streak, Cup chances
Two-time World Cup giant slalom season champion Ted Ligety has been unbeatable so far this season, winning his third straight race in the discipline Sunday in Italy on the vaunted run at Alta Badia.
His margins of victory have been substantial and his confidence is high. Ligety, 26, was a surprise gold medalist at the 2006 Torino Games in the combined event.
Bonnie D. Ford spoke to him Sunday afternoon about his giant slalom streak and his prospects to contend for an overall World Cup podium slot.
