Men's super-G race at worlds rescheduled for Thursday

BEAVER CREEK, Colo. -- The men's super-G race at the world championships has been postponed a day to Thursday because of too much snow on the course.

A men's downhill training session Thursday has been canceled and the women's training run that day will move to later in the afternoon.

The forecast is calling for better weather as a front leaves the area.

Workers tried to remove the snow from the course Wednesday morning. But the snow kept falling and the wind intensified.

American skier Ted Ligety is the defending world super-G champion after winning in Austria two years ago. He won three gold medals at those championships.

On Tuesday, the women raced the super-G in blustery conditions, with Austria's Anna Fenninger taking gold and hometown favorite Lindsey Vonn finishing third.
