SLOPESTYLE CONFIRMED FOR WINTER OLYMPICS 2014 IN SOCHI

Jul 25 2011

An official IOC statement has created a bit of a buzz around the Outgoing office, especially the boarders amongst us – Slopestyle is here to stay… officially!

The statement read:

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) confirmed today the inclusion of ski slopestyle (men and women), slopestyle (men and women), and snowboard parallel special slalom (men and women) on the sports programme of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.

The decision was taken by the IOC Executive Board (EB) ahead of the 123rd IOC Session in Durban, South Africa, and follows the inclusion in April of ski halfpipe (men and women), women’s ski jumping, biathlon mixed relay, figure skating team event and luge team relay.

“We are very pleased with the addition of ski and snowboard slopestyle and snowboard special slalom in the Olympic Winter Games programme,” said IOC President Jacques Rogge. “Such events provide great entertainment for the spectators and add further youthful appeal to our already action-packed lineup of Olympic winter sports. We look forward to welcoming all the athletes to Sochi in 2014.”
