In exciting news for the Australian Winter Olympic Team, the most exciting spectator mogul event has been added to the roster.
Dual Moguls will make its Olympic debut in the 2026 Milano Cortina Winter Olympic Games with both a men’s and a women’s event.
The decision was announced following today’s International Olympic Committee Executive Board online meeting. Women’s Ski Jumping Large Hill was also announced as a new event.
The three new additions bring the total number of FIS medal events at the Olympic Winter Games to 58. In Beijing 2022, FIS staged 55 of the 109 medal events.
Australia has a podium heavy history in dual moguls with current Dual Moguls Crystal Globe 2021/2022 season winner, Jakara Anthony, sitting pretty to back up her Beijing Olympic Winter Gold in singles in the new dual event.
Anthony has seven podium places in FIS World Cup Dual Moguls in her career thus far including two gold, three silver and two bronze.
Britt Cox has won four podium places in Dual Moguls FIS events including two gold, a silver and a bronze and Matt Graham has also won four (one gold, a silver, two bronze).
It was also announced today that an Alpine Combined Team Event is under review. FIS will propose that the Team Event would be in addition to the traditional Alpine Combined as a replacement to the Alpine Mixed Team Parallel, which will not be on the 2026 Programme due to the travel logistics between the venues.
