Winter Olympics 2018 Ladies' slalom postponed for second time

Winter Olympics 2018 Ladies' slalom postponed for second time

Each of the first two contests were postponed because of risky winds that exceeded 25 miles per hour and the forecast predicts more of the same on today and Wednesday.

The weather in Pyeongchang, South Korea, appears to have something against Mikaela Shiffrin. Kristofic said he is "optimistic" about the weather on Thursday, saying the wind is supposed to die down and the course is in "perfect condition".

The wind gusts have been strong enough to push people around; by evening, metal detectors outside venues and all signage were laid down on the ground, to prevent them from being picked up by the gusts. The slalom will now be raced...

There are two runs on Thursday, the first starting at 10 am local time (0100 GMT/8 pm ET) and the second at 1.45 pm (0445 GMT/11.45 pm ET).

Austria's Anna Gasser, tipped as one of the favorites, fell on both of her runs and said the event was "not a good show for women's snowboarding", while bronze medalist Enni Rukajarvi said she was "most happy that no one got hurt bad".

This is the third time the organizing committee has rescheduled an alpine skiing competition due to inclement weather. That followed Sunday's postponement of the men's downhill.

"I had a lot of pressure and I'm just so proud of myself", she said.

"We do a really risky sport and this was really not a showcase of what these women can do", she added.

"Today's conditions would definitely not have been fair".

"We'll continue to take it day by day and I look forward to getting in the start gate!"

Two-time Olympic gold medalist American Ted Ligety missed the podium but said his fifth place finish in Tuesday's Alpine combined has given him a boost in confidence ahead of his giant slalom and super-G races at the Pyeongchang Games. Biesemeyer was taken to a medical clinic where he was treated and released. The women's alpine slalom event was moved to February 16 due to bad weather.

The Yongpyong resort is owned by the Unification Church, whose adherents are known as Moonies, and has hosted men's technical World Cup races four times since 1998.
