After Cook's crash, they canceled the remainder of the training runs, because of heavy fog resulting in low visibility. Olympic rules state that every competitor must complete at least one training session before a super-combined or downhill competition. There are training sessions scheduled on both Friday and Saturday; the women's super-combined is set for Sunday.
