Original title: "Ice and Snow Knowledge Micro-Classroom" Li Xin: The difference between traditional and freestyle cross-country skiing
In a cross-country skiing competition, if you use the wrong sliding technique, what penalties will the athletes get, do you know? Please listen to today's "Ice and Snow Knowledge Micro-Classroom".
Li Xin said: “Traditional style has technical requirements. It can’t go left and right, and there will be a snow trough-like ground on the snow track. We have to slide there, just like walking. If the public wants to practice some Oxygen exercises can improve our cardiorespiratory function and make our body healthier. The traditional style is more accessible to the public. Freestyle, just like the short track skating or road skating we have seen, is used in the same way. Then add the snowball fight, which is to slide left and right, and you can slide left and right when going uphill, unlike the traditional type that can only slide forward and backward.
If in the competition, the traditional technique is freestyle, the result will be cancelled. Because the current venues or current technology are relatively advanced, the whole process of the game is recorded, that is, the whole process is followed up. If you don't pay attention, you will be disqualified. However, professional athletes generally do very well.
Traditionally, it slides forward and backward. If you want to slide left and right when going uphill, it may save some energy. However, in international competitions or domestic competitions, there are some regulations in current competitions, and techniques that violate the regulations cannot be used, so this problem is very serious. As current cross-country skiers, whether they are foreign or Chinese athletes, they have to learn two methods, because one of the competitions is a double-chase competition, that is, the traditional and freestyle must be completed in one competition.
Tomorrow's "Ice and Snow Knowledge Micro-Classroom" we will continue to invite Li Xin to introduce you to the characteristics of the cross-country skiing double chase competition, so stay tuned.
