LONDON, April 6 The 2014 Sochi winter Olympics
will have six new events, including women's ski jumping that
long campaigned for inclusion, the International Olympic
Committee said on Wednesday.
Women's ski jumping, team events for figure skating and
luge, ski halfpipe for men and women and biathlon mixed relay
were included in the programme for the Olympics at Russia's
Black Sea resort.
Several other events would be monitored in the coming months
before a decision on their inclusion was taken, the IOC's
Christoph Dubi told reporters.
