Alpine Skiing - Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics - Women'sGiantSlalom - Yongpyong Alpine Centre - Pyeongchang, South Korea - February 12, 2018 - Gate keepers stand against the wind as the women's giant slalom at the Winter Olympics is postponed due to high winds at the Yongpyong Alpine Centre.
"I'll use this time to continue to train and refocus on Wednesday's slalom race".
Shiffrin, 22, became the youngest Olympic slalom champion when she won gold in Sochi as an 18-year-old and is tipped to win multiple medals in Pyeongchang. Compare: at the 2017 world championships, she took GS silver; she finished second as well in the 2016-17 World Cup standings. Her first race, barring weather delays, is Monday's (Sunday 7:15 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.) giant slalom and two days later she'll aim to defend her Olympic slalom title.
"If I wasn't a skier, I would maybe be a tennis player", Shiffrin said.
"The woman's giant slalom has been postponed until Thursday today because of high winds and a wind chill factor of negative 30 at the start, winds gusting to 30 miles an hour, so Mikaela Shiffrin's debut at these games will not happen until Thursday, Wednesday in the USA, and it will be sandwiched around the Men's Downhill, " said a clearly chilly Dan Hicks on the slopes to fellow NBC commentator Bode Miller. Even worse and more startling, she failed to finish three races.
Shiffrin knew it was time for a bit of a break when she went off-course with only a handful of gates left in a slalom at Lenzerheide, Switzerland, on January 28. "Thanks", Norway's Kjetil Jansrud, the downhill bronze medalist four years ago, wrote on Twitter. "The giant slalom is the most competitive for the women", says Rebensburg, with only Italian Deborah Compagnoni having previously won two golds (1994, 1998).
How many more races after that? The calendar also includes the downhill and super-G, plus what's called a super-combined (racers ski one downhill plus a slalom, fastest combined time wins).
Making its Olympic debut, the Alpine team event puts parallel racing in the Olympics.
It is scheduled for the last day of Alpine competition on the Yongpyong hill used for slalom and giant slalom.
