Beijing 2022 Olympische Snowboard Halfpipe

By Ninian Carter

February 4, 2022 - February 20, 2022 - Die Olympischen Winterspiele 2022, offiziell die XXIV Olympischen Winterspiele werden in Peking, china, abgehalten. Die Snowboard Halfpipe hatte ihr olympisches Debut in Nagano, Japan, 1988. Seitdem ist das Event ein fixer Bestandteil Olympischer Winterspiele.

The halfpipe is a purpose-built, semi-circular ramp made of snow, with seven-metre-high walls. Competitors perform aerial tricks above the walls while sliding from one side to the other.

Shaun White of the United States is the only halfpipe triple gold medalist. He is hoping to win a fourth in Beijing, before retiring from Olympic competition, but at the age of 35, and with his world ranking slipping, will he be selected by Team USA?
