Winter Olympics 2018: Canada announces record number of teams for bobsleigh events

In January, McAfee researchers discovered a phishing and malware campaign targeting organizations involved with Olympics infrastructure and support, with the goal of controlling infected machines using a new form of malware.

Competitors, officials and a few courageous fans made their way around the Olympic venues wrapped in layers of scarves, hats and thick coats as the biting wind added a significant chill factor to temperatures already down around minus 20 degrees Celsius.

White, starting last in the halfpipe, watched bronze medallist Scotty James wipe out before nailing a spectacular last run of the day to snatch victory from Japan's Ayumu Hirano, celebrating wildly afterwards.

Carla Somaini, of Switzerland, crashes during the women's slopestyle final. The network was not fully restored until 8am local time on Saturday, a full 12 hours after the attack began, The Guardian reported.

Separately, an expert at CrowdStrike said the cybersecurity firm had identified a new family of malware targeting the Olympics that was apparently created to destroy data that first emerged Friday on the day of the opening ceremony.

Olympic Destroyer doesn't appear to try to steal data, but only to render systems unusable and deleting information that could be used to recover them.

Anderson's compatriot Hailey Langland, who fell on the first run but put in a solid second effort to finish sixth, disagreed. "It is one we are dealing with", he continued. Rather, analysis shows they performed only "destructive" functions. "The first priority for FIS is the safety of the athletes and FIS would never stage a competition if this could not be assured". "We decided with the IOC we are not going to reveal the source [of the attack]", Pyeongchang organizing committee spokesperson Sung Baik-you told reporters on Sunday.

The winds were still high on Tuesday but organisers opted to go ahead with an adjusted downhill stage, starting lower down the course at the designated super-G start and using the "blue wind line" which effectively eliminates jumps from the race.

Pressed again on Tuesday for answers about the competition, a spokeswoman for FIS said told the Associated Press that officials "know it was very hard conditions for the riders", but that there was a medical staff on hand to deal with any emergencies.

Events including the women's biathlon, women's slalom, men's downhill and women's giant slalom were all postponed on Wednesday as strong winds also hit the Alpensia Biathlon Center.

Australia's day four campaign concluded with the cross-country skiing sprint classic, with Casey Wright (48th), Jess Yeaton (58th) and Aimee Watson (63rd) competing in the women's event and Phil Bellingham (65th) flying the flag in the men's qualification.
