Due to the strong wind and the forecast for Sunday, the jury together with POCOG has decided to reschedule the men's downhill for Thursday, February 15 at 11:00 a.m. KT/9:00 p.m. EST Wednesday.

The men's super-G will take place on Friday, February 16 at 11:00 a.m. KT/9:00 p.m. EST ThursdayBased on the official forecast, the jury has also canceled Monday’s alpine combined downhill training.

"We kind of expected this downhill to be postponed due to wind, but at the same time, the guys were charged up and ready to go," said U.S. Men's Alpine Head Coach Sasha Rearick, "With this being an outdoor sport, it is not abnormal. The excitement, the energy on the team right now is fantastic. I couldn’t be prouder of the team. Now the key is to take that energy and harness it, stay relaxed, and then be able to ramp back up. This gives us time to focus on slalom training for the combined, which is what we’ll do tomorrow.”
