Olympic biathlon delayed again

Sochi, Feb 17: The Winter Olympics men’s 15-km mass-start biathlon was delayed again Monday because the fog has lowered visibility in the Laura Cross-Country Ski and Biathlon Centre.

The race, which was previously scheduled for Sunday and was postponed to Monday, is expected to begin later, ahead of a scheduled women’s 12.5-km mass start, reports Xinhua.

The men’s snowboard cross seeding runs at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park have also been cancelled because of poor visibility.
