Sochi 2014 Olympic Update (Day 10)

It was only a matter of time until the weather became an even bigger issue in the Olympics and in Day 10 that would happen. A weather front would move in to Sochi creating fog in many of the mountain courses. For the second time in two days the Men’s Biathlon 15km Mass Start would be postponed to the next day while the Men’s Snowboard Cross would be cancelled and moved to Day 11. It has been a big story from before the Olympics began as the warm weather of Sochi would be a concern for many.
