Bad weather on Thursday left Lindsey Vonn with only one downhill training session for the final World Cup races ahead of the Pyeongchang Olympics.
Organizers first delayed training by half an hour as they lowered the start because of fog in the upper part of the Kandahar course Clive Walford Color Rush Jersey , then called it off as soon as it started to rain.
Weather conditions were expected to improve for the final training on Friday. The races consist of a two-run sprint downhill on Saturday, followed by a regular downhill the next day.

The McCourty twins are back together.
The Cleveland Browns traded cornerback Jason McCourty to the New England Patriots on Thursday, reuniting him with his brother Devin. The Browns also sent a seventh-round pick to the Patriots to get a sixth-rounder in return.
”Cleveland it’s been real!” Jason McCourty wrote on the Twitter account the brothers share. ”I wish nothing but the best to the guys in that locker room!”
The Browns have been one of the most active teams in the NFL this offseason as they try to rebuild from last season’s 0-16 record. They have already traded for quarterback Tyrod Taylor and three-time Pro Bowl receiver Jarvis Landry, while signing seven free agents Orlando Brown Jr. Color Rush Jersey , including running back Carlos Hyde.
They also made a deal on Wednesday to send defensive lineman Danny Shelton to New England for a third-round pick in 2019. But the defending AFC champion Patriots have mostly been losing players, including receiver Danny Amendola, left tackle Nate Solder, defensive back Malcolm Butler and running back Dion Lewis.
After spending his first eight seasons with Tennessee Michael Dickson Color Rush Jersey , Jason McCourty, 30, started 14 games and led the Browns with three interceptions and made 65 tackles last season, the most for any player in the secondary.
He became a locker room leader Hayden Hurst Color Rush Jersey , but also ruffled feathers by saying the team never should have gone winless after both coach Hue Jackson and new general manager John Dorsey bemoaned the team’s lack of talent.
”The talent in this locker room is not the talent to go win a Super Bowl this year, but this locker room is far more talented than 0-16,” Jason McCourty said following the season-ending loss in Pittsburgh.
”I’m kind of tired of hearing so many people say, even within the organization Mark Walton Color Rush Jersey , is we don’t have the guys or we need more guys. Let’s work with the guys we do have and find ways to win games.”
Also Thursday, the Patriots re-signed running back Rex Burkhead. A 2013 sixth-round draft pick who spent his first four seasons with the Bengals, Burkhead has run for 639 yards and eight touchdowns and caught 64 passes for 542 yards and four touchdowns in his career.
