Alpine skiing: Fog forces women's World Cup downhill cancellation

The women's World Cup downhill at the Swiss resort of Crans-Montana was cancelled on Saturday because of fog, the International Ski Federation (FIS) announced.

Heavy snowfall had originally forced the organisers to delay the start of the race but when the fog descended it gave them no option but to call it off.

There is a super-combined race programmed for Sunday.
