The organizers of the PyeongChangWinter Olympics on Wednesday rescheduled the women's alpine slalom and biathlon 15-kilometer individual event due to unfavorable weather conditions.
After sitting in 26th place following the downhill portion of the race where he battled headwinds, the 33-year-old tech specialist delivered a blistering slalom run in the second leg to secure fifth place, 1.45 seconds behind victor Marcel Hirscher of Austria. Disruption to Alpine skiing competitions is not unusual, however, and it is a rare Games where some re-jigging of the schedule is not necessary.
"My training has been really good in both super-G and giant slalom and I feel like I'm skiing well", he said.
International Olympic Committee spokesperson Mark Adams described rescheduling events at the Pyeongchang Winter Games as a "headache" but said reserve days were built in.
Mikaela Shiffrin should finally begin her highly-anticipated Pyeongchang programme on the back of two World Cup wins this season in the giant slalom.

"We are on day three, so, come back on day 14 and we can discuss it again", Adams told journalists when asked about pushing back the end date of the Games.
Friday also will be a double-competition day, with the women's slalom at the Yongpyong Alpine Center that hosts technical races, and the men's super-G at the Jeongseon Alpine Center speed hill about 30 miles (50 kilometers) away.
It's the third time in four days an Alpine skiing race was shelved because gusts made it too unsafe for competition.
Said Shiffrin's coach, Mike Day: "It's a very heavy load".
The women's alpine slalom event was moved to February 16 due to bad weather.
