The first women’s World Cup speed races in 2018 were doubtful on Friday as the snow on parts of the course was still too weak after heavy rain this week and mild temperatures.
The lower section of the Karnten-Franz Klammer course was not hard enough to stage the mandatory training for a downhill.
”It’s a difficult situation right now with the way the snow is and how they prepared the course [url=http://www.bearscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-jerrell-freeman-jersey]Jerrell Freeman Jersey[/url] ,” Lindsey Vonn told The Associated Press. ”I am not sure if we are going to be able to get a race off, but they are definitely trying as hard as they can.”
The American standout added ”the top is good but the bottom is not safe to race.”
Organizers swapped the program for this weekend by pushing back the downhill to Sunday and rescheduling a super-G for Saturday.
The first downhill training on Thursday was cancelled and a race can be staged only after competitors have at least one training run on the entire course.
Only a shortened run of less than 40 seconds was held on Friday on the upper hill, which included the steep Klammer Stich with a 73-percent grade. Training on the rest of the course was planned for Saturday after the super-G.
”Of course we all want to race but the conditions have to be good,” Tina Weirather of Liechtenstein said. ”I hope there will be a clear decision tomorrow morning, not postponing and waiting.”
As the skiers’ representatives this weekend, Vonn and Weirather will be talking to the race jury on Saturday when decisions are made.
”We have a strong voice,” said Vonn, adding the races should not be staged at all costs with the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang only a month away.
The last time Bad Kleinkirchheim hosted the World Cup, in 2015, both races were cancelled because of heavy winds.
Austria’s Christina Ager posted the fastest time in the short training session [url=http://www.texanscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-jon-weeks-jersey]Jon Weeks Jersey[/url] , followed by Sofia Goggia of Italy and Weirather.
Vonn, who failed to reach a podium in five previous races here, was 22nd.
American teammate Mikaela Shiffrin, who leads the season’s downhill standings after two events, is sitting out this weekend’s races to rest.
Green Bay Packers offensive lineman Lucas Patrick hasn't played baseball since he was a child. With one swing of the bat, he broke the nose of one of the "faces of the franchise."
At the Green & Gold Charity Softball Game on Saturday in Grand Chute, Patrick's line drive struck linebacker Clay Matthews in the face, breaking the long-haired star's nose.
"I talked with him immediately after it happened," Patrick said Monday. "I went up, and he was as calm and cool as could be. He's a tough guy to hop up like he did. He helped settle my nerves. I felt terrible [url=http://www.pantherscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-graham-gano-jersey]Graham Gano Jersey[/url] , of course."
Patrick called it "one of those fluke things" that happens in baseball. Matthews was pitching at the time.
Matthews, who has not taken part in workouts following offseason knee surgery, was not at Monday's practice. He likely will have surgery on his nose later this week, coach Mike McCarthy said.
"I talked to him again today. He's a nice guy and (I'm) praying for him. Hope everything heals up. He was as good a guy as you could be during that," Patrick said.
Matthews has posted on Twitter that he was thankful the injury wasn't more serious. Despite a scare involving one of his premier players, McCarthy said is still OK with participation in the charity game.
"Anytime your players give back, charity involved in the community, that's a great day for the fans. I mean they sell it out every year," McCarthy said. "Yeah, I'm not going to overreact to this."
Matthews and receiver Davante Adams were co-captains for the game [url=http://www.bengalscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-chris-baker-jersey]Chris Baker Jersey[/url] , taking the place of Jordy Nelson, who was released in March.
Patrick has been starting at left guard in place of Lane Taylor, who had offseason ankle surgery. When training camp begins in late July, Patrick and Justin McCray will be the front-runners to fill the vacancy at right guard, where veteran Jahri Evans started last season.
"It's been huge," Patrick said. "The best part is I can go with Lane after every practice and be like, 'Hey, on this set, I was seeing this, feeling this.' And he gives me his take on what I should do [url=http://www.broncoscheapshop.com/cheap-authentic-carlos-henderson-jersey]Carlos Henderson Jersey[/url] , what I can do better, or if he thinks what I'm doing is pretty good."
The Packers are in the last week of voluntary workouts. Mandatory minicamp takes place next week.
The only player who has not participated in the practices is safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix.
"Ha Ha, just like a number of veterans, when we start the offseason program, we go through everybody's individual schedule," McCarthy said. "Things do come up, so he's had a personal situation that he's attended to, so I have no concerns."
