Sochi Olympics Delayed by Fog

Men’s biathlon mass start was nixed for the second day in a row, and the snowboard cross event was postponed due to fog on Monday Feb. 17 as weather continues to make headlines during the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics.

The biathlon race had been pushed back from Sunday evening to Monday morning, and was then postponed to mid afternoon before being called off for Tuesday at 2:30 pm. Fans are sharing photos to Instagram with captions like “fans are bored” and “sad biathlon athletes.”

The Alpine schedule wasn’t affected Monday, but the women’s giant slalom on Tuesday was pushed forward by 90 minutes to avoid problems. Down on the Black Sea coast, the fog burned off by midday, and Olympic Park was busy with people. Here are a few photos and videos from Sochi:
