The final had been scheduled to start at 1000 local time (0100 GMT) but has been delayed for at least 75 minutes.

Qualification for the event was canceled on Sunday due to the wind, with all of 26 the competitors progressing straight into the final, which will consist of two runs.

The best score over the two runs counts as their final mark.
