Rules to play down hill skiing

Speed disciplines
1. The downhill and Super G take place as one run. The skier with the fastest time is the Olympic champion. The margin of victory, counted to the hundredth of a second, is usually very small. Ties are possible.

Because of the high speeds involved in the downhill and Super G, crashes and falls often prevent a skier from completing the course. However, a skier may finish a race and get an official result as long as he or she retains at least one firmly bound ski at the finish line. .....

Downhill
2. In downhill, a skier must master speeds of up to 90 mph on various combinations of ice and snow while managing turns, steeps and flats. Although crashes are uncommon (only two skiers did not finish the downhill course in 2006), they can be spectacular.Downhill is the only discipline where skiers are allowed training runs. Three training runs are scheduled on the Olympic slope prior to race day; each skier must start at least one of those runs.

The start order is determined by the results and points from World Cup events leading up to the Games. Based on a pre race draw, the skiers ranked in the top 15 will receive a start number 8 22, while the skiers ranked 16th through 30th will receive a start number 1 7 or 23 30. They are followed by the rest of the field, starting with the skiers with the most World Cup Start List (WCSL) points, then FIS points.The last time the time difference between the gold and silver medal winners was more than one second in the Olympic downhill was 1964. .....

Super G
3. The Super G made its Olympic debut at the 1988 Calgary Games. Short for super giant slalom, it combines the speed of downhill (usually 60 65 mph) and the precise turning (30 35 changes of direction) of giant slalom.Unlike the downhill, no training runs are permitted in the Super G; only a one hour visual inspection on the morning of the race is allowed. Skiers must memorize the course quickly, trust their instincts to find the fastest line and stay true to their technique to produce an error free run.The start order is determined by the results and points from World Cup events leading up to the Games. Based on a pre race draw, the skiers ranked in the top 15 will receive a start number 8 22, while the skiers ranked 16th through 30th will receive a start number 1 7 or 23 30. They are followed by the rest of the field, starting with the skiers with the most World Cup Start List (WCSL) points, then FIS points. .....
Technical disciplines
4. The slalom and giant slalom are held as one day, two run events. Usually, the first run is held in the morning, the second run in the afternoon. In each event, a one hour visual inspection of each course is allowed prior to each competition run. Skiers must memorize the course quickly, trust their instincts to find the fastest line and stay true to their technique to produce an error free run.The first run start order for the both events is determined by a draw the night before the race. Using rankings from the latest WCSL points list, the top seven skiers are randomly assigned start positions 1 7. Skiers ranked 8 15 on the WCSL list are randomly assigned the next eight bibs. The remaining skiers are slotted in the order of his/her FIS points.

All skiers who finish the first run are permitted to ski the second, regardless of their rank. In the second run, the skiers with the fastest 30 times in Run 1 start first, in reverse order, i.e. 30 1. They are followed by the rest of the field, i.e. ranked 31 and up.During the second run, the combined time is shown on the screen. The skier with the fastest sum time for both runs is the Olympic champion. Ties are possible.High speed crashes are extremely rare in the technical events, but falls and errors along the course mean that .....

Slalom
5. The slalom event tests a skiers ability to maneuver quickly and efficiently down a ski slope scattered with alternating blue and red gates. The number of gates on a course is normally between 60 65 for men, 50 55 for women.

Because of the high technical demands of the course, the ratio of skiers who do not complete the course (DNF) to skiers is quite high. Occasionally, a skier who has missed a gate will ski up the hill to successfully pass it before completing the course and getting an official result. Clearly, this unexpected detour removes even the most skilled skier from medal contention. A skier may also be disqualified (DQ) after crossing the finish line if replays show that he or she improperly passed a gate. .....

Giant slalom
6. The giant slalom premiered at the 1952 Oslo Games, and of late, has produced the most diverse field of any of the Alpine events.The giant slalom features wider, but fewer turns. The number of gates (normally, mid 50s for men, mid 40s for women) is determined by the vertical drop of the course. As in slalom, the gates are set alternately blue and red. The frequency of DNFs is lower in giant slalom than in slalom, but the same rules for disqualification apply. .....
Super combined
7. The combined event tests a skiers ability to handle both the speed and technical aspects of Alpine skiing.For the first time since the Alpine combined was re introduced to the Olympic program in 1988, the event will consist of one downhill run followed by one slalom run in a format called the super combined. (From 1988 2006, the classical combined consisted of one downhill and two slalom runs.) The order of disciplines may be altered in the event of inclement weather and resultant scheduling conflicts.The courses are shorter than those used in the downhill and slalom specialty events. All skiers who finish the first run are permitted to ski the second, regardless of their rank. The order of skiers in the first run is decided by a bib drawing. In the second run, the skiers with the fastest 30 times from the downhill start, in reverse order, i.e. 30 1. They are followed by the rest of the field, i.e. 31 and up.During the second run, the combined time is shown on the screen. The skier with the fastest combined time for both disciplines is the Olympic champion. History shows that the combined winner was not necessarily the fastest skier in either of the two disciplines. .....
Boots
8. Reinforced plastic boots are specific to the competition discipline. Raising of the boot sole is permitted to increase the ability to pressurise the ski. The maximum distance between boot sole and foot is regulated, presently at 50mm for men and 45mm for women. .....
Gloves
9. Made of leather or synthetic material. Slalom gloves also have a plastic forearm guard for protection when skiing through the gates. .....
Goggles
10. Ski goggles protect the eyes against weather, glare and the effects of speed on the eyes. Goggles can be worn with a variety of lens colours to maximise contrast and visibility. .....
Helmet
11. A helmet is compulsory for downhill and super G and is often worn in slalom and giant slalom. Some skiers choose to attach a chin guard. .....
Poles
12. In the downhill and super G, poles are curved to fit around the body to reduce air resistance. In the slalom events, poles are straight and often have plastic guards covering the knuckles to help skiers knock the slalom poles out of their path. .....
Skis
13. Skis are generally made of various material (wood, composite fibres) specially adapted to the wear and tear they undergo during a race. Their performance on the snow depends also on their length, width and shape which vary, depending on the course, and the speed. Metal edges on the skis are sharpened for every race to make the ski hold during the turn on the icy surface. .....
Suit
14. Skin tight racing suits are worn to reduce air resistance and suits must meet minimum requirements for air permeability. Padding may be worn under the ski suit a plastic back protector is usually worn in downhill. In slalom events, pads are frequently worn on the arms, knees and shins. .....
Bindings
15. Bindings are the link between the boots and the skis. Safety bindings will release when the torsion or impact is strong enough. The maximum height (distance between the bottom of the running surface of the ski and the ski boot sole) is regulated at 55mm. .....
Age limits
16. All participants must have turned 15 before the end of the 2010 calendar year to be eligible. .....
Races
17. In all forms of Downhill, both at a local youth level as well as the higher FIS international level, racers are allowed extensive preparation for the race, which includes daily course inspection and discussion with their coaches and teammates as well as several practice runs before the actual race. Racers do not make any unnecessary turns while on the course, and try to do everything they can to maintain the most aerodynamic position while negotiating turns and jumps.Unlike Slalom and Giant Slalom, where racers have two combined times, in the Downhill, the race is a single run. Times are typically between 130 (1 minute, 30 seconds) and 230 for World Cup courses and must be over 1 minute in length to meet international minimum standards. Tenths and hundredths and, occasionally, thousandths of seconds count World Cup races and Olympic medals have sometimes been decided by as little as one or two hundredths of a second, and ties are not unheard of. .....

Ancient origins
19. Skiing can be traced to prehistoric times by the discovery of varying sizes and shapes of wooden planks preserved in peat bogs in Russia, Finland, Sweden and Norway. Ski fragments discovered in Russia have been carbon dated back to circa 8000 7000 BC. It is virtually certain that a form of skiing has been an integral part of life in colder countries for thousands of years. .....
First competitions
20. Skiing changed its from a method of transportation into a sporting activity during the late 19th century. The first non military skiing competitions are reported to have been held in the 1840s in northern and central Norway. The first national skiing competition in Norway, held in the capital Christiania (now Oslo) and won by Sondre Norheim, in 1868, is regarded as the beginning of a new era of skiing enthusiasm. A few decades later, the sport spread to the remainder of Europe and to the US, where miners held skiing competitions to entertain themselves during the winter. The first slalom competition was organised by Sir Arnold Lunn in 1922 in M .....
Olympic growth
21. Mens and womens alpine skiing both debuted on the Olympic programme in 1936 at Garmisch Partenkirchen. The only event that year was a combined competition of both downhill and slalom. In 1948, this was held along with separate downhill and slalom races. Four years later the giant slalom was added and in 1988 the super giant slalom became a fourth separate event. .....
Course
22. A typical course begins at or near the top of the mountain on a piste that is closed off to the public and groomed for the race. Gates are farther apart.The courses in the world's most notable ski areas are well established and do not change significantly year to year.The course is designed to challenge the best skiers in a variety of ways skiing at high speeds, through challenging turns, shallow dips, flats, and small airs (jumps). A good course will have all these elements in it, as well as some jumps intended to complicate matters and thrill both the racer and the spectators. .....
Competition change
23. The only competition change for the 2010 Vancouver Games involves the super combined. The super combined incorporates one run each of downhill and slalom, with medals being awarded to the three fastest racers based on their combined times in the two runs. The predecessor to the super combined the combined incorporated one downhill run and two slalom runs. .....
Quotas
24. In June 2009, the International Ski Federation (FIS) released the quotas which determine the maximum number of Alpine skiers a nation may bring to the 2010 Olympics. The FIS quota is based on performance and depth of field during the 2008 09 season.Austria, Switzerland, France and Italy earned the most spots (22), followed by the United States with 20.Over 300 Alpine skiers are expected to compete in Vancouver. .....
