Olymipcs-Alpine skiing-American Ligety confident after strong combined finish

Age is nothing but a number for the Winter Olympians of 2018

Tessa Worley, the French world champion expected to challenge Shiffrin, recovered from a disastrous first run to clock 1:09.00, but it only lifted her to seventh.

Alpine skiing athletes have been dealing with delays in their events because of strong winds in Pyeongchang.

American Mikaela Shiffrin put on a show of grace, power and consistency to win her first gold medal of the Pyeongchang Olympics in the women's giant slalom on Thursday.

Her chances of participating in the Super-G came to an end after the weather caused the giant slalom to be postponed from Monday until Thursday and the slalom from Wednesday to Friday.

What's the difference between the two Alpine skiing events? They could reduce the length of the downhill by about 20 seconds and shorten the slalom by 10 gates.

Silver medalist Ragnhild Mowinckel of Norway finished 0.39 second off the pace, while Italy's Federica Brignone took bronze after completing the two runs 0.46 second slower than the victor. And perhaps more medals to be won.

At the 2014 Sochi Games, Shiffrin won the slalom crown at age 18. A couple of more days didn't seem to bother her one bit.

Now, Lt Colonel is honey-trapped
Earlier, there were speculations that the officer was being investigated for a possible case of honey trap . Sources said that he may be taken to Lucknow for further interrogation.

She's a rare skier who can be competitive in both the tactical and speed races, though the task ahead of her is huge. "But to do it on demand like that (in run two) is absolutely awesome". It continues on Thursday night with two more runs.

Photo Manuela Moelgg of Italy had the fastest time in the first run. She delivered, managing to stay upright on a tense final run.

Volunteers and officials remove installed facilities at Yongpyong Alpine Centre in PyeongChang, Gangwon Province, on February 14, 2018. The top three finishers in the heat move on to the next round. And we're finally racing today. She's one of the most decorated women in the sport of snowboarding, except at the Olympics.

For almost a year now, Shiffrin expected to be done with roughly half of her odyssey at the Pyeongchang Olympics by nightfall on February 14.

But with two wins in three Olympic races over two Olympics, who is going to doubt her?

Today Stiegler will compete in the event in which she's most comfortable.

In curling, men and women face off in the round robin. If she does, she would be the first American woman to medal in the event. Her best finish at the Olympics was 11th in the slalom at the 2010 Vancouver Games. In Sochi, the USA claimed bronze in the men's event. Stiegler received much of the leftover applause from the largely American crowd that was in attendance to watch as Shiffrin took home her first gold medal of this year's Games.
