Winter X Games' Future In Aspen Undecided Past 2012

LOBBYING EFFORT: In Colorado Springs, Brian Gomez noted skiing halfpipe athlete Jen Hudak has lobbied the IOC to put the sport "on the program for the 2014 Sochi Games." The IOC in October "voted to delay a decision on men's and women's skiing halfpipe for 2014." The IOC Exec Board allowed IOC President Jacques Rogge "to make the call himself," and a decision "will be determined by April." Gomez noted the sport is "almost identical to the snowboard version," and it "will be a major part of the Winter X Games." A "modified form of skiing halfpipe will be on display" today and tomorrow at Denver Big Air, "with 73 competitors on a ramp at Civic Center Park that measures 106 feet high, 296 feet long and 70 feet wide" (Colorado Springs GAZETTE, 1/22).
