After twice pushing back the start time for the first run of the slalom at Yongpyong Alpine Centre, officials chose to postpone Wednesday's race to Friday, meaning American star Mikaela Shiffrin must wait another day to begin her Olympics. Rather than being postponed, that event was run after a delay.
