5. Luge(4 events)

6. Skating(28 events)

Figure skating has developed from a practical way to get around on ice into the elegant mix of art and sport. Short track speed skating is a skating competition that takes place on a 111.12m track in a 960x30m ice rink. As it uses a shorter track than the conventional 400m track, it is often called short track. Speed skating involves two athletes wearing skates that start simultaneously and compete speeding on a 400m ice track.

7. Skiing(55 events)

The birth of modern downhill skiing dates back to the 1850s. Cross-country skiing is the oldest type of skiing. It emerged from a need to travel over snow-covered terrain and developed as a sport at the end of the 19th century. Freestyle skiing combines speed, showmanship and the ability to perform aerial manoeuvres whilst skiing. It debuted as a demonstration sport at the 1988 Calgary Games. Nordic Combined, which has a long Olympic history, combines ski jumping and cross-country skiing. Ski jumping is a form of Nordic skiing where the skier glides down a (35°~37°) ramp at 90Km/h to jump and fly as far as they can go from the launching zone to make a stable landing in the landing section. Snowboard is a sport that uses a board attached to rider’s feet to speed down a slope. Snowboard was first developed as a sport in the United States in the 1960s.
