Dangerous winds played havoc with the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics Wednesday, forcing the postponement of two medal events and closing a major area for spectators who were told to stay indoors.Four straight days of high winds have badly disrupted the Pyeongchang Games. Only one ski race has been held so far: the men's combined, which was also delayed to allow winds to subside.Strong winds were also blamed for a farcical women's slopestyle competition on Monday, when almost all competitors crashed in the heavy gusts.According to officials, winds of up to 25 metres per second have made it difficult even to stand in some mountain areas.
