Adaptive Bobsled/Skeleton
Para-Bobsled found it's start in the early 2000's with its first World Cup event in 2014-2015. As of right now the World Cup hosts only one category of athlete: a seated category for athletes that have spinal cord injuries, above the knee amputations and other injuries which medically fit that classification. The U.S. team has a large contingent of lower limb amputees due to our warrior programs and currently they do not fit into that classification. The ESWG event in February will be a first of its kind in that we are holding a "push" event for athletes that currently do not classify into the World Cup seated category.
