Snowboard Halfpipe Olímpico em Pequim 2022

By Ninian Carter

February 4, 2022 - February 20, 2022 - Os Jogos Olímpicos de Inverno 2022, oficialmente designados XXIV Jogos Olímpicos de Inverno, têm lugar me Pequim, na China. A prova de Snowboard Halfpipe fez a sua estreia Olímpica nos Jogos de Nagano, no Japão, em 1988, e esteve em todos os Jogos de Inverno desde então.

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?
