Bobsleigh or bobsledding is a sport of exhilarating but dangerous speed (up to 90 mph or 145 kph). In this winter sport, teams of two or four make timed runs down a narrow, banked, twisting, icey track in a gravity-powered sled. Timed runs are combined to calculate the winning score.
Women’s bobsleigh competition began in the US in 1983 with two demonstration races in Lake Placid, New York. Two woman bobsleigh made its Olympic debut at the 2002 Winter Olympic Games. Bobsleigh is also contested at American, European, and World Cup championships.
