What are the rules for Ski Jumping?

There will be five events at the Winter Olympics which are: Men's Normal Hill Individual, Men's Large Hill Individual, Men's Team, Women's Normal Hill Individual and Mixed Team.

On the Winter Olympics website it says: "In competition, jumps are evaluated by the distance travelled and the style of the jump.

"The distance is measured along the curve of the landing hill from the takeoff point to the spot where the jumper lands."

For the men's individual normal hill and large hill competitions there are two training sessions, a qualifier, and the final.

Meanwhile, the women's normal hill has no qualifying round and instead proceeds straight to the final, which consists of one trial jump and two rounds of scored jumps

The mixed team ski jump competition takes place on the normal hill with a woman-man-woman-man sequence, with the same scoring method as for the men’s competition
