Luge

Speed and aerodynamics define the sport of luge. Sliding feet first down an icy track, athletes look to shave off every thousandth of a second they can. Keeping their bodies as relaxed as possible as they shoot down the 20 curve, 1,455 meter track, lugers engage their core and steer the sled with simple leg pressure on the runners or shoulder pressure on the sled. Four disciplines make up a Luge competition: Men’s Singles, Women’s Singles, Doubles, and Team Relay.

Slide your way to glory. USA Luge hosts multiple slider search programs throughout the year to look for future Team USA athletes.
