Variants of Downhill Skiing
The Federation of International Skiing was founded in 1924, the same year it made its maiden appearance at the Chamonix Winter Games. Skiing may have established itself as a permanent Olympic sport in one or more forms. There are numerous sports disciplines, but only six are represented in the Olympics: Alpine, Cross Country, Ski Jumping, Nordic Combined, Freestyle, and Snowboarding.
Alpine – Super-G, and Downhill
There are ten events, five for men and five for women. Downhill skiing has the fastest speeds and the longest track in alpine skiing. Super Giant Slalom, sometimes known as super-G, is an intriguing race that combines downhill speed with precise giant slalom bends. The person who completes a single course in the quickest time wins.
Alpine – Combination of Salmons and Super
The shortest track and quickest turns are the focus of this game. The huge slalom has a series of smoother, wider, and fewer turns. In this game, the skier must make two-run downs to two distinct courses on the same slope of the runway. Both timings are combined, and the winner is determined by the sum of the fastest overall times. One-run slalom is followed by a shortened downhill run in the super-combined event. The sum of the times is tallied, and the player with the quickest overall time is declared the winner.
This skiing event features 12 different cross-country courses. The sprint, team sprint, 10km solo, 15km pursuit, 30km mass, and 4x5km relay are among the events in which women compete. Men compete in events comparable to women’s until the 15-kilometer chase, but the major event is the 50-kilometer relay with 4×10-kilometer runners.
Ski Jumping (Ski Jumping)
This sport is now exclusively played by males, consisting of three events: individual hill, normal hill, and large hill team. Individual competitions give each participant two leaps, and the player with the highest total score wins. On the other hand, the team event has four members per team, and after the first jump, the team is reduced to the top eight teams.
