Women's WCup training canceled because of winds
Thursday, January 5, 2012
BAD KLEINKIRCHHEIM, Austria (AP) -- The final training session for a women's World Cup downhill was canceled Friday following an overnight storm.
Fierce winds had blown away sections of the safety netting along the Kaernten-Franz Klammer course, and the winds were still too strong Friday for a safe downhill run.
The ruling FIS said it expected the race to go ahead as scheduled on Saturday. A first downhill training session was completed on Thursday.
A super-G on the same course is scheduled for Sunday.
