    Skeleton

    Skeleton ranks among the Olympic Games' most exhilarating competitions with athletes sliding down icy tracks head-first on small sleds at adrenaline-pumping speeds of more than 80 mph. While the sport owns a long history, its Olympic track record is fairly limited, only finally debuting at the 1928 Games and later being banned twice due to safety concerns. The sport endured a 54-year Olympic absence after 1948 until finally being reinstated for the 2002 Salt Lake Games. With Skeleton back in the program to stay, learn more about its history, its rules and how sleds are designed to be as aerodynamic as possible.
