Sochi, Russia • The slalom gold medal at the Sochi Olympics will be decided during daytime hours in the Colorado hometown of ski star Mikaela Shiffrin.

Exactly 200 days from the Feb. 7 opening of the Winter Games, Russian organizers published the full competition schedule Monday.

Shiffrin won titles at the world championships and World Cup last season. At the Olympics, she will compete at night Feb. 21 in the Rosa Khutor resort. Slalom medals are expected to be decided about 9 p.m. local time, or 10 a.m. in the 18-year-old Shiffrin's hometown of Vail.

However, the Feb. 19 men's giant slalom should finish before 4 p.m. That's 5 a.m. in Park City, Utah, where likely favorite Ted Ligety lives.

Men's and women's downhill contenders probably will start toward midday, or 3 a.m. in New York, on Feb. 9 and 12.
