GENEVA, June 8 /TASS/. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) approved four new events for the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, on Monday, the Associated Press reports.
The additions include Big Air in snowboarding, mass start in speed skating, mixed doubles in curling and a team skiing event in Alpine skiing.
In Big Air events, boarders fly off a highly pitched ramp similar to those on the slopestyle course and perform jumps with multiple flips and spins. They do as many jumps as possible in an allotted amount of time, the Associated Press said.
The commitee also approved the removal of Parallel Slalom in snowboarding from the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
The only Parallel Slalom competitions in Olympic history took place at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Russian athlete Vic Wild won the gold medal.
