Amid rumors that the downhill events may have to be delayed, the women's downhill training run was canceled Thursday because of poor conditions, meaning Lindsey Vonn's key training run won't happen until Friday at the earliest.

The last skier down the course, Stacey Cook, fell and was injured during her run, and had to be helicoptered off the course.

The women's downhill is scheduled for Feb. 17.
