Your own Winter Olympic Games Programme

Recommended Posts

Gigs    5

I guess I'm a bit late to the party but here is what my perfect Olympic program would look like:

 

Alpine Skiing [11]

  • Slalom (m/w)
  • Giant Slalom (m/w)
  • Super-G (m/w)
  • Downhill (m/w)
  • Combined (m/w)
  • Team Event (mixed)

I would change the Team Event to its old format where you had a Super-G run first and then a Slalom run. Of every nation you had one man/woman who skied the Super-G, one who skied the Slalom and one who had to ski both. So both teams needed good male and female athletes and they needed speed skiers, slalom skiers and allrounders. It wasn't that exciting to watch but currently one team only needs one good male slalom skier and one good female slalom skier and they can win gold. That's ridiculously unfair. 

Biathlon [11]

  • Sprint (m/w)
  • Pursuit (m/w)
  • Individual (m/w)
  • Mass Start (m/w)
  • Team Relay (m/w/mixed)
  • single mixed relay 

I like the inclusion of a mixed event but 3 relays are too much. Therefore I'd prefer to see a single mixed relay to have a different kind of race while still including a mixed event

Bobsleigh [4]

  • Two-man/woman (m/w)
  • Four-man (m/w)

+1

Cross-Country Skiing [12]

  • 15/10km Freestyle (m/w)
  • 30/15km Skiathlon (m/w)
  • 50/30km Classical (m/w)
  • 4x10/5km Relay (m/w)
  • Individual Sprint (m/w)
  • Team Sprint (m/w)

Curling [2]

  • Tournament (m/w)
  • Mixed Doubles (mixed)

-1

Figure Skating [5]

  • Singles (m/w)
  • Pairs (mixed)
  • Ice Dancing (mixed)
  • Team Event (mixed)

Freestyle Skiing [10]

  • Aerials (m/w)
  • Moguls (m/w)
  • Halfpipe (m/w)
  • Slopestyle (m/w)
  • Ski Cross (m/w)

Ice Hockey [2]

  • Tournament (m/w)

Luge [4]

  • Singles (m/w)
  • Doubles (open)
  • Team Relay (mixed)

Nordic Combined [5]

  • Individual Normal Hill/7.5km (m) (one jump)
  • Sprint Normal Hill/7.5km (w)
  • Mass start Normal Hill/10km (m) (two jumps)
  • Individual Large Hill/15km (m) (two jumps)
  • Team Large Hill/4x5km Relay (m)

I think it's time for a women's Nordic combined event. The competition probably wouldn't be great but I don't like that women are still completely excluded from a sport. 

The rest is a combination of old Nordic Combined disciplines. I don't like that the Normal and large hill events are almost identical so I want the return of the old format of a sprint (with one jump) and an individual race (with two jumps). Moreover I'd like to see the return of mass start events. They were usually not as exciting as the other races but it was the only discipline where it's worth watching both the ski jumping and the cross country skiing part, and again I simply like variety.

Short Track Speed Skating [8]

  • 500m (m/w)
  • 1000m (m/w)
  • 1500m (m/w)
  • 5000m/3000m Relay (m/w)

Skeleton [2]

  • Singles (m/w)

Ski Jumping [5]

  • Normal Hill (m/w)
  • Mixed Team Normal Hill
  • Large Hill (m)
  • Large Hill Team (m)

+1

Snowboarding [12]

  • Halfpipe (m/w)
  • Slopestyle (m/w)
  • Big Air (m/w)
  • Parallel Giant Slalom (m/w)
  • Parallel Slalom (m/w)
  • Snowboard Cross (m/w)

I'm really angry at the IOC for cutting the Parallel Slalom especially because the reasoning is so stupid. "It's too difficult to differentiate between the disciplines" Problem solved, one of the just isn't a parallel event anymore. Since I prefer the dynamic of parallel slaloms I decided to make the Giant Slalom the Individual event (with two runs like in alpine skiing btw) and bring back the old parallel slalom.

I really don't have much knowledge of all ice skating sports so I just let them as they are.
