Steeped in sporting history, the ski runs of Patscherkofel are famous for hosting the Olympic Winter Games in 1964 and 1976. Today, history was made again as these slopes witnessed the first ever mixed parallel team event on an Olympic programme.

Austrian ski heroes Stephan Eberhater and Sigfrid Wolf officially opened the competition in a head-to-head race down the course.
