Shiffrin opened her Olympics with a title and figure skaters Aljona Savchenko and Bruno Massot smashed their own world record to grab gold as full Olympic competition resumed on Thursday after days of wind disruption. The 22-year-old Shiffrin kicked off her bid for multiple titles in Pyeongchang with a storming second run in the giant slalom, ending a nervous wait after it was postponed because of high winds on Monday. The Sochi 2014 slalom champion from America was overcome after her powerful descent brought her gold from Norway’s Ragnhild Mowinckel by 0.39 seconds. “I don’t know how to explain it. It’s crazy. There’s so much emotion,” Shiffrin said. “To come to the Olympics after some tough races on the World Cup circuit and to charge like that — I risked it on the second run — it’s super-cool.” Earlier, Aksel Lund Svindal, 35, became the Olympics’ oldest alpine ski champion in the men’s downhill, with Kjetil Jansrud completing a Norwegian one-two. “Attacking Viking” Svindal, coming to the end of a stellar career, clocked 1min 40.25sec down the 3km-long Jeongseon course to hand Norway its first Olympic downhill gold. “It feels pretty good, I’m extremely happy,” said Svindal.

Wisma Putra imposes travel ban to North Korea Asian Cup qualifying match between North Korea and Malaysia now at risk as foreign ministry says travel ban due to escalating tensions in Korean peninsula. PETALING JAYA: The government has imposed an immediate ban on Malaysians travelling to North Korea. The foreign ministry released a statement this morning announcing the travel ban, adding that it was until further notice. “The decision to impose the travel ban on Malaysians to North Korea was taken in view of the escalation of tensions in the Korean peninsula and related developments arising from missile tests,” Wisma Putra said. The ministry added that the travel ban will be reviewed once the situation has returned to normal. There has been heightened tension after North Korea’s two missile tests over Japan earlier this month, with United States President Donald Trump saying he was ready to respond with military action, during his speech at the United Nations general assembly. Last week, North Korean foreign minister Ri Yong Ho told reporters in New York that Pyongyang was ready to test a powerful nuclear weapon over the Pacific Ocean. Meanwhile, the travel ban is also likely to impact the upcoming AFC Asian Cup 2019 qualifying match between North Korea and Malaysia, scheduled for Oct 5 in Pyongyang. On Sept 20, FAM president Tunku Ismail Sultan Ibrahim announced in a statement that he had been given special permission from North Korea to travel direct to Pyongyang prior to the match, instead of having to stop over in Beijing, China first. He said this following a meeting with North Korean envoy to Malaysia, Kim Yu Song. The match was originally scheduled for March 28, and then June 8.
