Speed, precision, and finesse are key in the sport of skeleton. As athletes slide head first, just inches from the ice, down the 20 curve, 1,455 meter track, detail is everything. Subtle shifts in body weight, as well as pressure to the shoulders and knee bars, steer the sled at blistering speeds. Skeleton is divided into two divisions: Men’s and Women’s.
Propel yourself down the icy shoot or watch these aerodynamic sliders wiz by, reaching speeds of up to 80mph. Don’t blink, you may miss them flying by!
