Fog and concrete -- crog?

In addition to the foggy atmosphere, the athletes are also complaining of the concrete dust that's in the air. Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway (pictured here) chose not to compete in the giant slalom event, saying, "There's a lot of athletes that have some kind of allergy against something here. I think it's something from the concrete that's in the air, like some fine dust. When I got here, I felt it." Getty Images
