Olympic Alpine Skiing Schedule 2018

14 February 2018

On Tuesday, the accomplished American can keep her streak alive with a gold medal performance in the Alpine slalom at the 2018 Winter Olympics. The event was also postponed on Sunday because of conditions.

After a trio of delays due to strong winds, the decision to shut things down came an hour after the event was supposed to have started on Wednesday morning on the slopes of South Korea.

"Mikaela Shiffrin is hard to beat, she can get a medal in the games in every discipline", said Holdener.

Alpine events have now been delayed three times this week due to weather; the women's 15 km biathlon event was also postponed today.

Which skier will be fastest on the slopes and claim the gold medal in Women's Slalom when the finals take place early tomorrow? Shiffrin's Olympic debut will now be pushed to Thursday for the rescheduled giant slalom.

The dominant figure in the technical events on the women's World Cup circuit, in which she heads the overall standings with 10 wins, including five in slalom, the 22-year-old is a strong favorite.

"Neither of those were really achievable today", Kristofic said.

Qualcomm will meet with Broadcom to discuss $121 billion buyout
Qualcomm expects China's blessing as early as this month, at which point it has to decide whether it would raise its offer. Qualcomm had rejected Broadcom's first unsolicited $ 103 billion acquisition offer in November, without engaging further.

But Shiffrin says she has arrived in Korea refreshed and ready for the challenge. Slalom's second run is set for 1:45 p.m. local time (11:45 p.m. ET Wednesday).

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

While some skiers, like Mikaela Shriffin of the USA, will have to compete in back-to-back days because of the postponements, it seems like the safe call to keep athletes out of whiteout conditions as they fly down the mountain.

- "Roll with punches" -Paul Kristofic, head coach of the U.S. women's team, said it was just a question of rolling with the punches.

Skaardal added that FIS had "a very good opportunity" of hosting the two women's races on "favourable days for the forecast".

"We've been through days like this before, in the World Cup, quite often and the number one thing is safety and the second thing is to have a good, fair race".

The conditions have cause both concern and debate - particularly after the International Ski Federation put off some skiing events, but not the women's snowboard slopestyle, which saw dozens of riders fall on their runs two days ago.
