1ST LEAD Shiffrin made to wait as women's Olympic slalom postponed By Andre Leslie, dpa

Pyeongchang, South Korea (dpa) - Games organizers postponed the women‘s slalom event on Wednesday morning as strong winds continue to plague the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.

The two-run event at the Yongpyong Alpine Centre was initially due to start at 10.15 am (0115 GMT) but was later put back to 11.45 am as strong winds whipped across the course. It was eventually called off, and will now be held on Friday.

The postponement means US medal favourite Mikaela Shiffrin is yet to compete in an event at the Games, after the women‘s giant slalom was also affected by winds on Monday.

Both that event and the men‘s downhill have already been postponed to Thursday, by which stage the weather is expected to improve.

The 22-year-old, who is currently the overall leader in the women‘s World Cup, is aiming to add to her slalom gold medal in 2014. She is expected to compete in a number of alpine events in Pyeongchang.

Friday‘s race times will be announced later on Wednesday, officials said. A men‘s super-g is also set for Friday after being moved back a day.
