Olympic women's slalom postponed to Friday

IANS  |  YongPyong (South Korea) 

The women's slalom, which was due to take place on Wednesday, was postponed to Friday due to strong winds, the 2018 Winter Olympic's organising committee announced.

After several delays in the schedule, the event was eventually called off as the hurricane-like winds made it impossible for the athletes, including the US rising star Mikaela Shiffrin, to compete in such weather conditions, reports

The rescheduled event will coincide with the men's super giant slalom in Jeongseon.

The schedule of skiing events at the PyeongChang Games has suffered multiple delays.
