Pequim 2022 Slalom Gigante Paralelo em Snowboard Olímpico
February 4, 2022 - February 20, 2022 - Os Jogos Olímpicos 2022, oficialmente designados XXIV Jogos Olímpicos de Inverno, têm lugar em Pequim, na China.
The Parallel Giant Slalom (PGS) event includes two evenly spaced courses (10-15 meters apart) with vertical distances of 20-27 meters between turning gates, allowing for speeds of up to 70km/h.
Once qualifications are complete, racers are placed in a head to head knockout format, starting with 16 athletes and moving to a final race for gold and silver. The course is long, resulting in high speeds, while racing against an opponent on a similar course placed parallel to the other.
PGS became an Olympic event at the Salt Lake Games in 2002, when it replaced Giant Slalom which had debuted only four years earlier at the Nagano Olympics in Japan.
