Olympic men's downhill postponed because of strong wind

Why Lindsey Vonn is one of the most astounding athletes of all time

Alpine Skiing - Pyeongchang 2018 Winter Olympics - Women's Giant Slalom - Yongpyong Alpine Centre - Pyeongchang, South Korea - February 12, 2018 - A ski gate is blown by the wind as the women's giant slalom at the Winter Olympics is postponed due to high winds at the Yongpyong Alpine Centre.

"Yeah, um, I'm not sure where to start, exactly", Shiffrin said, rolling her eyes a bit as she searched for the right words.

The Colorado native could hardly contain her excitement when asked to describe herself using one emoji. "But with the training block I've had, I'm prepared and feeling good", she said.

"I was emotional and crying and frustrated", she said, "just not really myself".

American Jamie Anderson laid down the best first run to retain the title she won in Sochi four years ago but pre-event favorite Anna Gasser, who failed to land either of her runs, said the final should have been postponed.

Heading into this year's Olympics, she's been on a tear, as during the 2017 season, Shiffrin racked up six slalom victories, three giant slalom wins and one alpine combined.

One of the key lessons is emphasizing her love of skiing and desire to improve more than how she fares in any given race.

Tata Motors is showcasing two of the 2018 Auto Expo's hottest vehicle concepts - the 45X premium hatchback and the H5X 5 seat SUV. At the event, Honda Cars India said that it will introduce three new models in the Indian market during the next fiscal.

The 2013 world championships in Schladming, Austria, marked the first time Shiffrin went to a major event leading the World Cup slalom standings. "How many medals has he won?" "So that's what I did". Since that string of podium appearance, she's had five races, finishing no higher than seventh.

Women's giant slalom, which was scheduled for Sunday night, will take place at a future date to be determined.

"I would like to compete in everything", she said.

"That's insane", says Shiffrin.

Actually, Phelps' haul is 23 golds - and 28 medals in all.

It is unlike any of the other 10 medal races, which are all individual events. Phelps says he's retired, but who knows?

Not that there is anything wrong with it, but it is more Ryan Lochte than Michael Phelps, whose dominance of a sport is what Shiffrin seeks to match. "It's extremely flattering, but it's apples and oranges".
