If you looked at the original competition schedule, you know that this Olympic episode what supposed to be a riveting breakdown of the women’s slalom and giant slalom. Two gold medals would have been awarded–perhaps to heavy favorite Mikaela Shiffrin of the U.S. However, Mother Nature had different plans. Gusting winds as high as 70 km an hour have made it impossible to host a safe and fair race. But what does that really mean? Gabbi Hall and co-host Claire Brown from Ski Racing Media are both based at the Jeongseon Alpine Center in South Korea for the Winter Olympic Games where they are also working as researchers for NBC. On this week’s episode they tell us about the alpine venue and what it’s like to be working at the games as well as offering their medal predictions for the upcoming women’s races.
