Twelve stunning winter sports events will make their debuts at the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, taking place in Russia from 7 to 23 February 2014. This means 12 more gold medals will be up for grabs!

Appearing at the Olympic Winter Games for the first time will be snowboard slopestyle (men’s and women’s); ski slopestyle (men’s and women’s); ski halfpipe (men’s and women’s); and women’s ski jumping.

The composition of the Olympic Programme is systematically reviewed after each edition of the Games to keep it relevant and appealing to younger generations. Great efforts have been made to modernize the Olympic Games to remain in tune with the latest trends and developments in world sport, and the International Olympic Committee works closely with each international federation at the Winter Games to offer the best possible sports programme that appeals to all audiences.

This VNR contains:

– Interview with Christophe Dubi, IOC Sports Director, in English and in French, explaining the reasons for adding the new events, and profiling each event in turn.
– Spectacular B-roll footage of the events
– Powerful IOC promotional videos explain the rules and format of the competition for each event.
