Edmonton Journal - - 2018 WINTER OLYMPICS -

Ath­letes and or­ga­niz­ers con­tin­ued bat­tling the weather on Day 5 of the Games.

For a third straight day, events were can­celled be­cause of high winds on Wed­nes­day. The women’s slalom, which was sched­uled for Wed­nes­day morn­ing, has been post­poned to Fri­day, with start times still to come.

De­lays are com­pli­cat­ing an al­ready packed com­pe­ti­tion sched­ule and mean that some ath­letes will be forced to com­pete twice in one day some­times.

In Gangneung, the city host­ing Olympic skat­ing events, or­ga­niz­ers took to loud­speak­ers to urge pedes­tri­ans to go in­side and take shel­ter from the wind.
