TheActiveTimes: New Olympic Events for 2014

9 of 11

Team Alpine Skiing

The IOC rejected this event despite a hard push by FIS, which is still holding out hope that the event will make it into the 2018 lineup.

"It is disappointing that the alpine nations team event will have to wait until 2018 for its debut, since it has proven to be a true highlight at our FIS World Championships," said FIS President Gian Franco Kasper in a 2011 response to the event’s rejection at Sochi.

The alpine nations team event last took place at the 2013 World Championships in Austria, in a mixed gender elimination tournament format. Each round was a best of four on a parallel slalom course, with two women and two men from each team racing against each other.
