The following events have been added to the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic programme:
- curling mixed doubles (men’s and women’s)
- speed skating mass start (men's and women's)
- alpine skiing nations team event (men's and women's)
- snowboard big air (men's and women's)
These modifications were approved by the IOC Executive Board (EB) in June 2015. The EB also decided to remove the snowboard parallel slalom (M/W) in agreement with the International Ski Federation (FIS).
The changes reflect the continued evolution of the Olympic Winter programme and build on the success of recent editions of the Games. They also build on the reforms outlined in Olympic Agenda 2020 which aim to create more flexibility in the programme of the Olympic Games.
