Exciting stuff here people! Looks like snowboarding is so popular it may just garner two new events in Korea. According to a post on the USSA website:
On the heels of the successful debut of new Olympic events like slopestyle snowboarding, the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association (USSA) is proposing the addition of two new Olympic snowboarding events. The USSA will make its formal proposal to the International Ski Federation (FIS), the sport’s governing body, when its entire membership meets June 1-6 in Barcelona for its FIS Congress for the inclusion of big air snowboarding and team snowboardcross. Big air has been contested at the FIS World Championships since 2003 while SBX has been an integral and popular Olympic event since 2006.
Looks like old Blanco made a good buy when he purchased the Air and Style. Now it will be like he’s winning more medals with out doing any stunts! Just one question, what the fuck is team SBX?
