The race action started today at 10:45 this morning with ladies sprint followed immediately by the men. Today’s format included a qualification round from which the top 30 are distributed into 5 heats of 6 skiers. The top 2 skiers from each skier and the next two fastest skiers advance to the semi-finals. From the semi-finals, the top two skiers from each heat and two lucky losers advance to the final.
The weather remains close to perfect with -14C today and dry snow. It is a bit on the windy side though, so while Nordic combined was able to complete their competition today, the ski jumpers’ competition has been cancelled for tonight.
