Women`s  World Cup downhill cancelled

The women`s World Cup downhill at the Austrian resort of Bad Kleinkirchheim on Saturday was postponed due to strong winds, organisers announced.

Gusts reaching 105 km/h combined with mild temperatures of 14 degrees made staging the event impossible.

Organisers were expected to make a statement later on whether the rest of the weekend`s programme could go ahead, with a super-G scheduled for Sunday but no drop in temperature forecast in the meantime.

American speed queen Lindsey Vonn had been hoping to use this weekend to equal Austrian Annemarie Moser-Proell`s record of 62 World Cup wins set in 1980. Vonn is currently on 61.
