Snowboard Halfpipe Olímpico en Beijing 2022

By Ninian Carter

February 4, 2022 - February 20, 2022 - Las Olimpiadas Invernales 2022, conocidas oficialmente como XXIV Juegos Olímpicos de Invierno, se realizan en Beijing, China. El evento Snowboard Halfpipe debutó en 1988 en los Juegos de Nagano, Japón, y desde entonces se ha realizado en todas los Juegos Olímpicos de Invierno.

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?
