The men's 15-kilometre mass-start biathlon race at the Olympics has been postponed for another day because of fog and is now set for Tuesday.

The race was rescheduled for Tuesday at 2:30 p.m. local time (9:30 a.m. ET) barring any more weather-related issues.

Organizers say a decision on the women's 12.5K mass start, which is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. (10 a.m. ET), is expected at 4 p.m.

The men's race initially was delayed by one hour and then postponed Sunday because fog made for poor visibility on the shooting range. It was reset for Monday at 10 a.m. (1 a.m. ET).

However, with fog still hanging over the course, organizers delayed the start for at least another 5 1/2 hours before calling it off as conditions failed to improve.
