Olympic Alpine Skiing Rules
The International Paralympic Committee has drafted rules and regulations to regulate the administration of alpine skiing contests.
Several of the rules include the following:
When skiing with one ski, athletes in classes LW9 and LW2 are not permitted to use the free limb in touch with the snow to gain speed or maintain balance. Violators of this regulation shall face disqualification.
If a guide becomes ill, visually impaired competitors may substitute guides with the consent of the International Paralympic Committee’s alpine skiing judges.
The committee is responsible for certifying and licensing the guide. Additionally, all guides must have adequate vision, with visual fields within customary norms, for safety reasons. Athletes have a requirement to ski with guides. During the race, physical contact between the competitor and the guide will result in disqualification. During the competition period, all competitors in class B1 must wear blacked-out goggles; the model for Google is optional.
Additionally, the distance between the guide and athlete must not exceed two direction changes in technical events such as giant slalom and one direction change in speed events like downhill and super-g. Failure to adhere to this regulation will result in eventual disqualification.
All guides must wear competition bibs that feature a visible G on the front and the international paralympic committee’s alpine skiing logo on the right shoulder front. The bibs are maybe orange or red. Snow machines and other noise sources must be kept to a minimum throughout the racetrack for visually impaired racers.
The Olympic alpine skiing competition in 2022 will truly bring people of all races and genders together to celebrate the sport’s delight, and people are looking forward to it in apprehension.
