YongPyong (South Korea), Feb 14 : The women's slalom, which was due to take place on Wednesday, was postponed to Friday due to strong winds, the 2018 Winter Olympic's organising committee announced.

After several delays in the schedule, the event was eventually called off as the hurricane-like winds made it impossible for the athletes, including the US rising star Mikaela Shiffrin, to compete in such weather conditions, reports Efe.
