Third time lucky for Robinson?

9:14 am on 15 February 2018

It'll be hopefully be third time lucky for New Zealand slalom skier Alice Robinson at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang today.

The 16 year old Robinson is New Zealand's youngest Winter Olympian but has had her debut at the Games postponed twice this week.

She was due to compete in the giant slalom on Monday but high winds forced the event's postponement until today.

The same happened with yesterday's slalom event which is now scheduled to run tomorrow.

The giant slalom is due to start at 1.30 this afternoon.

Rhys Thornbury in the skeleton and Duncan Campbell in the snowboard cross are the other New Zealanders due to compete today.

The skeleton is scheduled to begin at 2pm and the snowboard cross at 3pm.
