Women's giant slalom
We get the debut of potential breakout star Mikaela Shiffrin of the U.S. The 18-year-old is stronger in slalom but could pick up her first Olympic medal in the giant slalom. The first of two runs has been moved earlier in the morning because of changing course conditions.
The U.S. put itself in a risky situation when it switched up teams last week, moving former sprinter Lauryn Williams to the No. 1 sled with Elana Meyers. The two have raced together only once in competion. Tuesday will be the first two runs of a four-run competition.
Because of a shootout loss to the U.S., Russia did not earn a top-four seed and must play a qualification game to get to the quarterfinals. It should have an easy time with Norway and would get Finland after that. The U.S. will play the winner of the Czech Republic-Slovakia game.Men's giant slalom
