Watch: Swiss Winter Olympics team create alternative events including escalator hanging and pallet-truck bobsledding

As the rest of the Olympic athletes battle it out for gold, the Swiss freestyle ski team have created their own alternative Winter Games in PyeongChang.

The skiiers created the quirky competitions to kill time between events and training.

The new sports included extreme escalator rides and even creating their own version of the famous Olympic movie Cool Runnings with the help of a spare hand pallet truck.

Most freestyle skiing takes place starting on Thursday this week, with eight sets of medals to be given out over nine days of eventing.

New Zealand has nine athletes competing against the imaginative Swiss team in freestyle skiing.
