The National Alpine Skiing center “Xuefeiyan” is located in Yanqing, Beijing. It is the alpine skiing venue for the Beijing Winter Olympic Games.It hosts 11 alpine skiing events, with 11 gold MEDALS at stake.The track has a maximum vertical drop of over 900 meters.The steep slope is a great challenge for the athletes, so how can the staff guarantee the event in such an environment?Downhill athletes turn and fly at more than 100 kilometers per hour. It is easy to make mistakes and cause danger. How to carry out rescue in time?At five o ‘clock in the morning, the first shuttle bus from the National Alpine Ski Center to pick up the event support staff left.The cableway station is the first place that xiaohaituo Mountain wakes up every morning.Ropeways run like blood vessels, sending arriving workers to their posts up the hill.A morning meeting before departure is essential.Gao Yu, the leader of the Alpine Skiing rescue team at the National Alpine Skiing Center, is a former alpine skier who is in charge of the alpine rescue team management at the National Alpine Skiing Center after retirement.As head of the alpine skiing rescue team, Gao Yu has great responsibilities.Located in Yanqing, Beijing, the National Alpine Ski Center has seven tracks, three for competition and four for training.The longest course has a vertical drop of about 900 meters, and riders can glide at a top speed of more than 130 kilometers per hour.Maintaining such an environment requires a great deal of competition security.All the rescuers need to work closely to ensure the safety of not only the athletes, but also everyone before and after the event.On February 5th, just one day before the planned start date, the people of Xiaohaituo Mountain will race more.In addition to the athletes’ adaptability training, various technical officials and event broadcasters also make final preparations on the track.At this time, people do a lot of things, the most easy to busy out of chaos.Rescue teams have to keep an eye on each track.Near noon, in a training track, staff accidentally slipped.Alpine ski rescue teams, who are nearby, rushed to the rescue.Because of the timely rescue, the injured fortunately no serious harm.Countless exercises and drills over the past three years have helped them remain calm and comfortable today.All their efforts and persistence are for the Beijing Winter Olympics.February 6 is the first day of the planned start of competition at the National Alpine Skiing Center in Yanqing area of Beijing Winter Olympics.During the race, rescue workers fanned out at different points on the course, keeping an eye on the Olympians at different stages.The first day of the men’s downhill was scheduled to start at 11:00.But the weather was not pretty, and the wind blew wildly and unsteadily.The rescuers were scattered at different points, ready to report the athletes’ condition.Three hours passed before I knew it.The temperature at the starting point of the men’s downhill competition was 14 degrees below zero.The game was delayed by an hour, then another hour.After three postponements, the match was rescheduled to February 7.By this point, rescuers had been frozen on the mountain for seven hours.As there were already two matches scheduled, plus the postponed matches the day before, the schedule for February 7 was full.Each rescuer was carrying 50 to 70 pounds of equipment.There will be three games on February 7th, involving two transfers, and supplies will need to be extremely well prepared.The first run of the women’s giant slalom starts at 9:00.If the athlete doesn’t fall hard enough to leave the field on his own, rescue workers don’t have to be called in to avoid disruption to the event.Between the first and second games, there was a 10-minute transition time for the rescuers.The second race was an even more dangerous men’s downhill.Schweiger, from Germany, made a mistake.From the time the rescue team was evacuated to the time the transfer was completed, it was about 13 or 14 minutes.Rescue ship after use to immediately eliminate, other rescue team immediately came to support, huang Lei and sent a rescue ship.Ten minutes after the end of the second game, the rescuers turned around again.The second run of the women’s giant slalom began.In the hearts of the rescuers, nothing is more gratifying than the safety of the athletes.From Feb. 7 to Feb. 20, the National Alpine Ski Center will compete in 11 events in 3 major events.But when the game is over, it’s not the end of the day.The track was almost empty, but rescuers could not leave and the Olympic Broadcasting Service had not yet come down the mountain.Make sure everyone at your point has been safely evacuated before rescue workers can leave.Night falls, and the empty mountains belong to the drivers of snowmachines.The trail, which had been used during the day, was smoothed and refreshed at night.In a few hours, the ropeway station will wake up.As the sun rises, a new day brings new games.Editor: Bao Lu Lead editor: Jin Xiaoying
