Among the most anticipated events of the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympic Winter Games is the Alpine Skiing competition.
Composed of 11 separate contests, viewers won’t want to miss American Lindsey Vonn when she attempts to defend her 2010 gold medal in Women’s Downhill (she was sidelined by injuries for 2014’s Sochi Games). Fresh off a fantastic showing at the World Cup, Vonn is poised to be a favorite.
In Alpine Skiing, men and women compete in two speed events (the Downhill and the Super-G), two technical events (the Slalom and Giant Slalom), and one combined event that is a mixture of Downhill and Slalom.
Additionally, a new event called mixed team will make its debut in Pyeongchang, consisting of two men and two women, with two other skiers in reserve. Two athletes from different teams will race directly next to each other along identical Slalom courses, and their teams will be rewarded a point if they win, knocking out the losers along the way.
Some non-Vonn names to watch out for? Keep an eye on American Mikaela Shiffrin, the reigning Olympic champion in slalom after winning her first gold medal in Sochi at just 18. Also certain to create buzz are the rising stars of the sport, like Austrian Marcel Hirscher, who is a favorite for several men’s events despite never having earned an Olympic medal. He looks to fill the vacuum left by newly-retired champion Bode Miller, who took home gold and bronze medals in Vancouver and Sochi, respectively.
With each race in Alpine Skiing taking no longer than 25 seconds, it is going to be a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it spectacle of athleticism.
