& Skeleton Information
Watch the world's fastest athletes
attack the world's fastest course lying down. Luge sleds weigh 50 or 60 pounds,
depending on the event, and fly at speeds exceeding 80 miles per hour. To appreciate
the speed, see it in person!! Luge and skeleton events take place at the Verizon
Sports Complex and event schedules can be found on the calendar of events.
What a great name for a sport!! Lie down on a sled that looks like a cafeteria
tray. Put your chin about six inches above the ice and roar down the course at
75 to 80 miles per hour. Everybody does it!! Lake Placid's Jimmy Shea is Olympic
gold medalist as well as past world and Winter Goodwill Games champion.
