Fog sets in, postpones events on Monday

Who ordered soup?

Here are some highlights from Monday's action at the Sochi Olympics:


Soup was the special on the Olympic menu. Thick, soupy fog in the mountains rolled in to Krasnaya Polyana on Sunday night, stuck around on Monday and knocked out a bunch of events. A men's biathlon race and a snowboard event were both postponed until Tuesday.


An Italian gay-rights activist says she was detained for several hours by police. The police say no such thing happened.

Vladimir Luxuria, a former Italian parliament lawmaker who has become a prominent transgender rights crusader and television personality, told The Associated Press she was stopped while carrying a rainbow flag that read in Russian: "Gay is OK."


Rivals compare her to a dancer because she skis with rhythm. She also wins plenty of gold. Darya Domracheva became the first female to win three gold medals in biathlon at the same Olympics when she won the 12.5-kilometer mass start race, missing only one target.


Norwegian skier Aksel Lund Svindal tells the AP he's skipping his last race at the Olympics because of allergies he thinks are "from the concrete that's in the air."

Svindal failed to win a medal in three races and was to have raced in Wednesday's giant slalom. ... Cross-country skier Astrid Uhrenholdt Jacobsen, whose brother died on the eve of the Olympics, has left Sochi and gone home. Norway was reprimanded by the IOC after its skiers wore black armbands in honor of Sten Anders Jacobsen.
