By CBC Sports
FIS Alpine announced that the men's downhill competition is postponed due to strong winds and will be rescheduled for next Wednesday.
No men's downhill at <a href="https://twitter.com/pyeongchang2018?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@pyeongchang2018</a> today 😔 The wind is too strong in Jeongseon. The forecast is not looking good neither, so tomorrow's AC-DH training is cancelled and next one on the schedule will be the Alpine Combined on Tuesday.—@fisalpine
Race organizers say the gondola lift carrying teams and officials up the mountain could not be operated.
Tomorrow's forecast is said to be unfavourable and so the next downhill training session is also cancelled. The next event is the alpine combined, which is scheduled for Tuesday.
Canada's Manuel Osborne-Paradis posted the fastest time in last Thursday's training session for the men's downhill.
Fellow Canadians Dustin Cook, James Crawford, Broderick Thompson, Benjamin Thomsen are also competing.
