Hirscher is older than 29 years old, but recently became a dad, and at the same time, he is interested in having an extremely impressive career over the next period.

Kristoffersen drove speed disciplines when he was younger but not after entering the World Cup.
"That's what I've been driving since I started in the World Cup, it's not that difficult to move, but you have to rightly prefer, and I've been training the super-G to get more speed tolerance for the big aldermen.
