Strong winds force cancellation of women's downhill race

Latest update : 2008-12-21

The women's world cup downhill in St-Moritz had to be cancelled due to bad weather, mainly strong winds. It's the second race in this discipline to be cancelled this season. No new fixture has been decided.

AFP - Strong winds forced race organisers to cancel the women's World Cup downhill here on Sunday.
  
Originally scheduled to start at 1000 GMT, it was first put back by half an hour and then delayed further to 1300 GMT.
  
But with no improvement in the conditions a decision was taken to call off the race.
  
The course had already been shortened to that of the super-G won on Saturday by 17-year-old Swiss skier Lara Gut.
