Well, two new skiing & snowboarding events are on tap for the 2018 Olympics:
- Alpine Skiing Nations Team Event
- Snowboard Big Air
One event removed:
- Snowboarding parallel slalom event (GS remains)
- Dual Moguls
- Freestyle Big Air
The criteria included the following for consideration:
"added value; youth appeal; attractiveness for TV, media and the general public; gender equality; minimum impact on the number of events and/or quotas; and infrastructure and operational cost and complexity"
On the non-skiing/snowboarding side of things, mass start in speed skating and mixed doubles in curling were added.
Any thoughts? (I'll just bite my tongue for now.)
