Olympic Telemark

 Poster: A snowHead

Do you think telemark ski racing should be a Winter Olympic sport? Discuss?

There's an on-line petition here: https://www.change.org/p/olympic-telemark-ski-racing-make-telemark-skiing-an-olympic-sport

@JAZTELEMARK, I signed the petition some time back. Madeye-Smiley Usually the IOC needs to see that there is a sufficient number of competing nations in a sport before it will introduce it into the Winter Olympics, but with the recent growth in participation in the FIS Telemark World Cup events (which have had live internet TV coverage and have been broadcast live on mainstream German TV) and the FIS Telemark World Championships in March 2017 with 70 athletes from 12 nations, I believe that threshold has now been crossed. The combination of gates, jump, 360 degree "loom" and final Nordic skating makes for good TV viewing, especially the head to head Dual Sprint event. snowHead

I've signed. My son in law started telemarking last year with a few lessons from Joe Beer in Les Gets. He had bought skis and boots the previous year from a friend who was progressing and had bought newer equipment so thought he should start properly. He skied with them nearly all the time.
