Snowboarding 180 Olympic Charter

terje Snowboarding 180 Olympic Charter
In a bold move that is sure to ruffle some of the elite old feathers of the Olympic Commission, Terje Haakonsen and a battalion of riders today signed The Snowboarding 180 Olympic Charter in Oslo, Norway. Basically it states that unless current non-FIS slopestyle events will count towards Olympic qualification, none of them will participate in the Olympics if Slopestyle gets voted in. Read the full declaration after the jump.

Snowboarding should be run by snowboarders.

- We recognize the Olympics as a potential pinnacle event of snowboarding, but only if our voices are heard.

- All snowboard events and organizations throughout the world must listen to the driving force of our sport: the athletes.

- Snowboarders want a transparent and democratic process in all decision-making systems that have an effect on our daily lives and occupation.

- Snowboarding will never reach its full potential with conflicting dates of major snowboarding events.

- We do not want a new world tour for slopestyle qualifications.

- We want an Olympic ranking to reduce the date conflicts of major events.

- We believe the International Olympic Committee has a responsibility to listen to our voices and make way for the unleashing of snowboarding’s true potential.

- We want all powers to start a dialogue to find a solution for the better good of the sport.

- Preserving the status quo in snowboarding is not an option.
