In the Olympic Womens Slalom today in Salt Lake the weather ended up becoming the most fearsome of competitors as a total of 19 racers failed to finish the first run! The resort received eight to ten centimeters of snow before the event, and snow continued to fall throughout the event.
The top Canadian was Emily Brydon of Fernie, B.C. in 27th place. Allison Forsyth of Nanaimo, B.C. did not finish the first run.
Genevieve Simard pulled out of the Slalom due to back spasms caused by training runs on Monday. She is, however, expected to be running on Friday's GS event.
