Women’s downhill training canceled due to weather

It’s another weather wipeout: Sunday’s women’s downhill training

has been canceled.

It’s the third women’s training session that has been wiped out

at the Olympics. The International Ski Federation says heavy rain

and snow forced the training runs to be called off.

Rules require that at least one training session be held before

a downhill race and the women’s downhill is scheduled for

Wednesday. That leaves only two more days to get a training in.

Warm temperatures mixed with snow, rain and fog have wreaked

havoc with the Alpine skiing portion of the games, with both the

men and the women yet to hold a race.
