SOCHI, February 05. /ITAR-TASS/. The configuration of the slopestyle trails at the Sochi Winter Olympics has been changed by a decision of the national teams’ captains, Russia’s freestyle chief coach Alexei Pokashnikov told ITAR-TASS on Wednesday, February 5.
“The decision to change the trail was made unanimously,” he said. The jumps have been cut from seven to six meters on men's trail and from six to five meters on women’s trail.
Athletes tried out the new trail during the day and “everyone liked it,” Pokashnikov said.
Earlier, he noted that it had been hard to assess the complexity of the trail during construction as there were, and still are, no clear-cut parameters by which to judge.
Slopestyle was included in the Olympic programme in July 2011.
