What Is Bobsled?
The sled here looks a little like half a pill instead of a flat sled. In the Olympics, you'll find the game played in two-person and four-person teams where the person in front is steering with ropes inside the sleigh, and the person in the back is in charge of the seldom-used brakes. When the pilot steers the sleigh, the front section of the sled is what changes to allow for steering.
Racers run alongside the sled pushing handles to start the race. Eventually, they jump into the sled. The average speed is somewhere around 93 miles per hour. It's the fastest of the three sledding sports with the fastest recorded speed at about 125 miles per hour.
The race can get intense. Just take a look at what the pilot saw as the German bobsled team crashed its way over the finish line on its second run in PyeongChang.
Now go forth and pretend like you watch these games more than once every four years.
