High winds could push back men's downhill race

9/2/2018 18:06
        High winds in the weather forecast could move the marquee men's downhill from its scheduled Sunday slot.
        
        Race director Markus Waldner says a Monday lunchtime start is the favored backup plan.
        
        Strong wind gusts forced a shortened practice run Friday to begin 564 feet lower down the Jeongseon race hill. The downhill start is at 4,495 feet altitude.
        
        Racers risk being blown off a safe line in strong winds, which can shut down the only gondola carrying teams and officials up the mountain.
        
        On Monday, the women's giant slalom is scheduled at nearby Yongpyong with runs starting at 10:15 a.m. and 1:45 p.m.
        
        Waldner says the men's downhill could start between those times.
