Alpine Skiing

  1. 1. Pure Olympic Exhilaration By Jordan C, Jack and Jordan S http://alpineskiingequipment.com/improve-alpine-skiing http://sportified.wordpress.com/2010/01/19/olympic-winter-sports-alpine-skiing-biathlon-bobsleigh/ http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2005/writers/tim_layden/10/19/layden1019/index.html Alpine Skiing
  2. 2. The History of Alpine Skiing Picture by: commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Bundesarchiv_... <ul><li>The sport of alpine skiing came from cross country skiing when skiers had to propel themselves across flat land. </li></ul><ul><li>Alpine skiing was born because engineers designed ski lifts to transport skiers back to the top of the hill eliminating the tough climb up the mountain. </li></ul><ul><li>The skiers could now repeatedly enjoy zooming downhill at higher speeds down longer courses that they would usually have to climb. </li></ul><ul><li>The ski lifts gave skiers the ability to use new techniques and equipment because they no longer needed to go cross-country. </li></ul><ul><li>It gave them the opportunity to use stiff boots that had the heel fixed into the ski for better control. </li></ul><ul><li>Alpine skiing has now developed into a fun, fast and popular sport for the Olympics. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Equipment <ul><li>Alpine Skiers use high tech equipment to enhance their performance. Here are some of their pieces of equipment. </li></ul><ul><li>Helmet- protects them from injuries and makes them aerodynamic </li></ul><ul><li>Poles- help them make short radius turns </li></ul><ul><li>Wide skis- the key to record breaking speeds on the mountain </li></ul><ul><li>Skin tight suit- makes them aerodynamic </li></ul><ul><li>Shin guards- protects them from injuries </li></ul><ul><li>Goggles- breaks the wind creating better vision </li></ul><ul><li>Boots- give the skiers control over the skis </li></ul><ul><li>Gloves- keep the hands toasty and give the skier grip for the pole </li></ul>http://flickr.com/photos/snipfer/344428129/ ; http://flickr.com/photos/stublag/3184459124/ http://shop.shreddingbetty.com/womens-snowboard--ski-goggles-c4.aspx http://www.xtreme-adrenaline.com/main.cfm?page=product_info&productid=965&category=0&subcategory=34&male=1&female=1&boy=1&girl=1&na=1&unisex=1&title=Sandbox%20Brain%20Bucket%20Helmet http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/more_sports/2009/11/29/2009-11-29_olympic_skier_lindsey_vonn_iced_in_aspen.html
  4. 4. Downhill <ul><li>Downhill is alpine skiing’s fastest discipline shattering speeds of 130 kilometres/h and therefore the most risky. </li></ul><ul><li>A layer of water or salt is spread over the course high up on the mountain to increase both safety and speed. Skiers weave through gates that are fairly far apart. </li></ul><ul><li>The thrill for skiers and spectators comes from the steep slope and the air time while making precise turns. </li></ul><ul><li>The skilled athletes do only 1 run but it doesn’t take very long. </li></ul>www.olympics.org.uk/gallerysimple.aspx?PH=94... http://www.olympics.org.uk/gallerysimple.aspx?PH=94&type=&Page=10&game=&AT=&sport=0 Women's Downhill
  5. 5. Slalom <ul><li>This version of Alpine Skiing has short and quick turns at precise angles because the space between the gates are small. </li></ul><ul><li>Since the basic line is straight skiers need protective equipment because they usually crash into the gates. </li></ul><ul><li>Now the skiers use short skis 160 cm or even less after an equipment change. </li></ul>http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/02/09/AR2010020901764.html?hpid=topnews This is U.S. Skier Lindsay Vonn
  6. 6. Giant Slalom <ul><li>These skis are longer than slalom and the gates are spaced farther apart creating a faster run because of the lack of turns. </li></ul><ul><li>Two times are combined and the goal is to have the lowest time. </li></ul><ul><li>The Athletes keep their chest forward as their knees bend on the graceful precise turns where you can see their legs on as little as a 20 degree angle. </li></ul><ul><li>These athletes need very powerful legs to propel their legs around the gates. This discipline definitely tests an athlete’s agility. </li></ul>http://www.zimbio.com/pictures/A3hoYRwi-p-/Audi+FIS+Alpine+World+Cup+Women+Giant+Slalom/heZWpf5yDLt/Michaela+Kirchgasser Michaela Kirchgasser of Austria during the Audi FIS Alpine Ski World Cup Women's Giant Slalom
  7. 7. Super-G <ul><li>Super-G is a combination of downhill and Giant Slalom. The gates in this event are widely spaced, but there are fewer of them. The tuck position is common as it increases the speed because it is aerodynamic. </li></ul><ul><li>Skiers can break unbelievable speeds of 96 kilometres an hour! </li></ul><ul><li>The minimum length for skis in super-G is 205cm for men and 200cm for women. </li></ul>Canada's Emily Brydon finished sixth at the FIS World Cup Super G at Lake Louise in December 2008. www.canada.com/.../1182090/story.html
  8. 8. Super Combined http://origin.ctvolympics.ca/alpine-skiing/news/newsid=4570.html Svindal leads downhill run in super combined, Kucera 30th <ul><li>Combined requires only one run of Slalom, and either a cut Downhill run or a single Super-G run. </li></ul><ul><li>The times of the runs are combined and the smallest time wins gold. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Countries Competing in the 2010 Olympic Alpine Skiing <ul><li>Nation - Gold, Silver, Bronze - 4th-10th finishes - Total Top 10s </li></ul><ul><li>Austria - 18, 22, 17 - 96 - 152 </li></ul><ul><li>Switzerland- 12, 9, 13 - 80 - 114 Italy - 10, 11, 8 - 60 - 89 USA - 10, 9 , 5 - 32 - 56 France - 7, 5, 2 - 45 - 59 Germany - 6, 3, 6 - 24 - 39 Sweden - 3, 3, 8 - 51 - 65 Norway - 3, 2, 3 - 14 - 22 Slovenia - 2, 1, 3 - 22 - 28 Finland - 1, 4 , 3 - 9 - 17 Croatia - 1, 3, 3 - 13 - 20 Canada - 1, 1 3 - 39 - 44 Czech - 1, 0, 2 - 7 - 10 Liechtenstein - 0, 1, 0 - 2 - 3 Slovakia - 0, 0, 0 - 2 - 2 Spain - 0 , 0, 0 - 1 - 1 Great Britain - 0, 0, 0 - 1 - 1 Russia - 0, 0, 0 - 1 - 1 </li></ul>
  10. 10. Conclusion <ul><li>Alpine Skiing is possibly the most exciting event in the Olympics. It requires magnificent athletes with great athleticism and skill. Watching any Alpine Skiing will be an amazing experience because of the graceful and precise turns and the record breaking speeds. Alpine Skiing is a truly great sport. </li></ul>
