Beijing 2022 Olympisches Freestyle Skiing Halfpipe

By Ninian Carter

February 4, 2022 - February 20, 2022 - Die Olympischen Winterspiele 2022, offiziell die XXIV Olymp. Winter Spiele, finden in Peking, china, statt. Das Freestyle Skiing Halfpipe hatte sein Debut als olympische Disziplin in Sotschi, Russland, in 2014 und wird seither bei allen Olympischen Winterspielen ausgeführt.

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.

Cassie Sharpe of Canada is the reigning Olympic champion in women’s halfpipe, after winning gold in Pyeongchang, South Korea in 2018.
