History of Freestyle Skiing in FISU

Freestyle skiing is a very young discipline where skiers compete against each other in groups of four to six on a freestyle cross course that is specially built. Freestyle skiing has recently gained more attention from the public and it has experienced phenomenal growth also in the international student sports community. Freestyle skiing continues to evolve. This exciting snow discipline was partly (Ski Cross) organised for the first time in the history of the Winter Universiade during the 22nd  edition in Innsbruck, Austria, where it was a great success in both men’s and women’s categories. Many former and still active good alpine skiers participated in this freestyle skiing event. At the 25th WU in Erzurum, Moguls were added on the programme of the freestyle skiing competitions in addition to Ski Cross. This competition had an enormous success also in terms of worldwide broadcasting. Men’s results: 1st: Aleksandr Kerner (RUS) /2nd: Evgeny Mikhailov (RUS) / 3rd: Denis Moisseyev (KAZ) / Women’s results: 1st: Darya Rybalova (KAZ) / 2nd: Irina Pisarevskaya (RUS) / 3rd: Alena Zueva (RUS). Freestyle skiing has been in the Winter Universiade programme since 2005 and has been organised six times.
