Pyeongchang, South Korea (dpa) - Mikaela Shiffrin in the women‘s slalom and Shaun White in the men‘s snowboard halfpipe were hoping to give the United States gold medals at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang on Wednesday.

Six gold medals were being fought for, with Germany‘s Laura Dahlmeier also back in action, seeking a third gold in Pyeongchang when she competes in the 15-kilometre biathlon.

Germany were also hoping for a medals boost in the Nordic combined where Sochi 2014 gold medallist Eric Frenzel and world champion Johannes Rydzek are among the starters.

The women‘s 1,000m in speed skating and the luge doubles completes the medals action.

Elsewhere the men‘s and women‘s curling tournament got underway, the joint Korea women‘s ice hockey team were back action with a game against Japan, and the figure skating pairs began with the short programme.

Temperatures rose to above freezing for the first time in the mountain resorts and was expected to reach 12 degrees in the Gangneung coastal venue cluster.

However, stiff winds at the Yongpyong alpine centre delayed the scheduled start of the women‘s slalom by 90 minutes.
