Austria’s Marcel Hirscher, the reigning world champion and 2014 Olympic silver medalist, missed a gate and skied out in his opening slalom run at the 2018 Winter Olympics.

Bode Miller, NBC’s Alpine skiing analyst and a six-time Olympic medalist, called Hirscher’s mistake “one of the biggest upsets in this Games.”

Norway’s Henrik Kristoffersen clocked the fastest time in the opening slalom run. The 2014 Olympic slalom bronze medal won the giant slalom silver medal in PyeongChang.   

Slalom features two runs. The times are added together, and the fastest total time determines the winner.

The second run is scheduled for 11:30 p.m. ET. Watch live here:
