  • Hong Kong's Arabella Ng makes history at the Winter Olympics: finishes 56th in giant slalom

The women's slalom event at the 2018 Olympic Games was postponed Wednesday because of risky winds.

"My training has been really good in both super-G and giant slalom and I feel like I'm skiing well", he said.

Shiffrin, who won Olympic slalom gold in Sochi at the age of 18 - a year after bagging the first of her world titles, was accepting of the strongs winds that have been buffeting the Jeongseon and Yongpyong ski sites for the Pyeongchang Games.

The women's slalom became the third Alpine ski race to be postponed at the Olympics.

Friday's start times will be announced later on Wednesday.

"We are on day three, so, come back on day 14 and we can discuss it again", Adams told journalists when asked about pushing back the end date of the Games.

The men's downhill, which was supposed to open Alpine skiing on Sunday, also was shifted to Thursday, when the forecast calls for a lessening of the swirling and blustery winds that have been creating problems.

While the remainder of Tuesday's session indicated that safety was not an issue on the downhill run, Jansrud questioned whether the integrity of the event had been maintained. That is something to which she is accustomed: World Cup races frequently are held on consecutive days, and twice this season she went three days in a row.

"We had hope to be able to get today's race completed as scheduled, but it became clear that the winds were simply too strong to guarantee a fair and safe competition", FIS race director Atle Skaardal said.

"Everyone is a little bummed out when a day like this happens, but they do happen, so we're quite used to it". No one has ever won all five at an Olympic games, man or woman.

Initially slated for a 10:15 am (0115 GMT) start, FIS said the first run of the slalom was now scheduled to start at 1145 am at the earliest.

She is expected to be one of the superstars of the next two weeks, considered a medal favorite in slalom and giant slalom, a strong contender in the combined and a possible entrant in the other two women's individual races, the downhill and super-G. Since then, she's been the queen of the slalom.
