Fog does not let the racers on the track, the men’s racing on the World Championships will be on Sunday

The men’s congress at the St. Moritz World Championships was not over today. The mist in the middle of the track caused the skiers not to stand up and their sharply watched race had to be canceled. FIS Federation finally translated it on Sunday, one day to take two races. At first the female starts at 11:15 and the men’s 13:30.
