May 9th, 2017 | Posted by Luke in Esafety | Learning

Bobsleigh or bobsled is a wintersport in which teams of two or four teammates make timed runs down narrow, twisting, banked, iced tracks in a gravity-powered sled.The timed runs are combined to calculate the final score.

 

The various types of sleds came several years before the first tracks were built in St.moritz,switzerland,where the original bobsleds were adapted upsized luge/skeleton designed by the adventurously wealthy to carry passengers. All three types were adapted from boys’ delivery sleds and toboggans.

 

Bobsleigh (bobsled)is my favourite winter sport and my dad went to help out with the world championships for  bobsleigh (bobsled)! Bobsled (bobsleigh) is very dangerous sport as you can hurt yourself easily if you make one mistake or if you are a miler second too slow you will lose and have to try again in four years as that is the amount of time between each winter Olympics!

 

One day I would like to go see the winter Olympics and I would like to meet a Bobsled player and get their autograph! If i had to do Bobsled for any country i’d go for USA as that was where i was born! In this winter sport you can have a team up to four and has a driver two middle men and a brake man!
