The fastest and longest of the alpine events is downhill skiing.
This is gonna be a little confusing... There are 4 events in what is called alpine or downhill ski racing Downhill Super-G GS Slalom So, alpine refers to skiing in general, whereas downhill can be used to refer to all skiing or only one event. Hope this helps :)
Downhill Super-G Slalom Giant Slalom Super Combined
Downhill, slalom, giant slalom, super G, and combined (one downhill run followed by two slalom runs).
Downhill is an alpine skiing discipline. The Downhill discipline involves the highest speeds and therefore the greatest risks of all the alpine events. Racers on a typical international-level course exceed speeds of 130 hm/h (81 mph).
Slalom, Giant slalom, Super giant Slalom, downhill and Super Combined.

3.Killy won gold in all three men's alpine skiing events (downhill, slalom, giant slalom) at the 1968 Winter Games in Grenoble.
that means that you do not compete on it. Instead you just compete on the other events.
Bode Miller is one of the best downhill skiers ever to ski the FIS World Cup. He won 2 silver medals in the 2005 Olympics. But she won't be returning this year. 2nd answer: Bodie is a "he". He is one of the few skiers to have wins in all of the alpine events-slalom, giant slalom, super gs, and downhill.
Slalom, giant slalom, and downhill.
what kinds of events make up theOlympic games, and what athletics compete in them?

Alpine There are 4 main types of alpine ski racing: slalom, giant slalom, super giant slalom and downhill. In the events you must ski around "gates" without missing a gate or you will get disqualified. You race against people in your age and gender and whoever make it down the course the fastest wins! Cross-country Is divided into classic and free (skate) categories or a combination of them. You ski a track which is a mix of uphill, downhill and flat parts ranging typically from a few to 50 kilometers. And as for alpine skiing, fastest to complete the course wins.
Men and women do compete against one another in Olympic equestrian and sailing events.
