McGarry to skip Super G event

Ireland's Kirsty McGarry is almost certain to give the Ladies Super G downhill event on Sunday a miss in order to concentrate on the Ladies Slalom events scheduled for next Wednesday and Friday.

"It is looking very doubtful for Sunday due to the current, very severe, course conditions," said her mother, alpine coach Jane McGarry.

"But we will make a final decision tomorrow morning when we see what the course and weather conditions are like then.

"Kirsty's best events are in the slalom disciplines and we feel it may be better to save her for these competitions."
