Two New Zealanders to compete today in Vancouver

6:04 am on 24 February 2010

There are two NZ athletes involved on today's programme at the Winter OLympics in Vancouver.

Within the next hour Ben Griffin will line up in the giant slalom, hoping to complete the course after failing to finish his first Olympic event, the Super-G last weekend.

And freestyle skiier Mitchey Greig will make her first Winter Games appearance in a new Olympic event, the ski-cross, a downhill event with difficult turns and jumps, which starts at 7.30.
