Looking back on the cool new events that rocked Innsbruck!

Looking back on the cool new events that rocked Innsbruck!

15/01/2013

As well as showcasing the best young talent from around the world, Innsbruck 2012 saw the Olympic programme debut of a whole host of cool new high-adrenaline events.

Among those that got the crowd really going were snowboard slopestyle and ski half-pipe. Both events join the programme for the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi in 2014, where we hope to see some of the stars of Innsbruck, including ski half-pipe gold medallist Kai Mahler (SUI), competing.

Other new events causing a frenzy of excitement last year in Innsbruck were the mixed parallel Alpine skiing race, ice hockey skills challenge, speed skating mass start and luge mixed team relay. Relive all the magic from these events and more on the Innsbruck 2012 YouTube channel, including the moment Kai claimed his gold medal!
