What Events Make up Olympic Ski Jumping At The 2022 Beijing Olympic Games
Olympic ski jumping is split into two categories, the men’s and the women’s divisions. In the men’s division, Olympic ski jumping involves three different disciplines. The first is the K90 Individual or the “normal hill” jump. The track itself, which is measured fr om the starting point to the “K” point (stopping point), can range anywhere fr om 75 meters to 99 meters, while the hill must be between 85 meters and 109 meters.
This discipline is followed by the K120 Individual and the K120 Team. The K120 individual is more commonly referred to as the “large hill” jump. This involves a track that has at least a 100-meter distance from the starting point to the “K” point. The hill itself must be at least 110 meters. The K120 Team discipline differs from the K120 Individual only in that it is run with a team representing a country, rather than an individual. The jumping parameters remain the same.
While the men’s events have been around since the Winter Olympics’ inception, the women’s events are a much more recent addition to the Olympic docket. In fact, female-specific ski jump events have only been an official Olympic sport since the Sochi games in 2014. There is only one discipline in the women’s Ski Jumping discipline, the K90 Individual.

What Are The Rules For Olympic Ski Jumping?
In the Olympic ski jump, skiers launch off a ramp after reaching speeds that average about 75 miles per hour. At the end of the ramp, athletes are shot into the air, where the skier must keep their skis in a V-shape until they touch down farther down the slope toward the base of the jump. Skiers are then judged based on the distance traveled, their form while in the air and how they stick the landing. The panel of five-line judges then assigns the athletes scores based on an average of the best performance with regard to form with the low marks deducted. These “flying” scores are then added to the distance scores to determine the rankings of each competitor.
