Weather forces schedule change for skiing worlds first race

CORTINA D’AMPEZZO, Italy (AP) — A snowy forecast has prompted a change in schedule for Monday’s opening race of the Alpine skiing world championships, the women’s combined. The order of the two-run race was flipped so that the slalom leg will precede the super-G leg. The forecast calls for overnight snow in Cortina. The slalom run is scheduled to start at 11 a.m. (1000 GMT) followed by the super-G at 2:30 p.m. (1330 GMT). The winner will be determined by adding together the skiers’ times from the two runs. Mikaela Shiffrin and Petra Vlhova are among the favorites. ——— More AP sports: and—Sports
