A sled with two runners. The maximum weight of sled and driver cannot exceed 115kg for men and 92kg women.
Head first, face down and hands back, approaching speeds of 80 mph, a skeleton slider races down the icy bobsled tracks of the world. Skeleton was organized in the late 1800's in St. Moritz, Switzerland, and appeared in the 1928 and 1948 Winter Olympics. The sport faded from popularity until the late 1970s when a resurgence started in Europe to bring the sport back to the public eye. Since then, over 20 nations have joined the ranks of skeleton sliding nations, with World Cup and World Championships held annually. The Skeleton sled itself measures three feet in length and 16 inches wide, weighing from 70-115 pounds depending on the sliders body weight. The sleds are made of steel and fiberglass. The slider wears a helmet with a chin guard. A skintight rubber suit is used to increase aerodynamics, and sprinter's spikes are worn for the quick 50-meter start.
winter sport in which athletes sled headfirst down an icy track
Skeleton is a winter sport in which competitors aim to drive a one-person sled in a prone, head-first position down an ice track in the fastest time. This differs from luge, where the rider drives the sled from a supine, feet-first orientation. Top speeds attained in skeleton—approximately 130 km/h (80 mph)—are slightly slower than in luge.
