Snowboarding Guide BEIJING 2022 OLYMPICS / PARALLEL GIANT SLALOM

The parallel giant slalom(PGS) event includes two evenly spaced courses (10–15 meters apart) with vertical distances of 20–27 meters between turning gates, allowing speeds up to 70 km/h.
Once qualifications are complete, racers are placed in a head to head knockout format, starting with 16 athletes and moving to a final race for 1st and 2nd.
It uses a much longer course than parallel slalom with gates set further apart (spaced 20–27 meters apart), resulting in even higher speeds, while racing against an opponent on a similar course place parallel to the other course.

The giant slalom is a historic Olympic snowboarding competition that has been held since the Nagano Olympics.
Since the last PyeongChang2018, it has become a parallel event where you can enjoy more exciting races.
