Bobsleigh, the sport where one, two or four athletes descend a narrow ice track. Racing against others to set down the fastest downtime. That is bobsleigh in short.
In this spectacular winter sport the topspeed can reach speeds up to 150km / h.
Our country delivered athletes to the Olympic Winter Games in
bobsleigh between 1924 and 1964. Belgium won 2 medals.
Since 2007 the Belgian Bullets (our bob women) have been present at
the IBSF races and at the Winter Games 2010, 2014 and 2018 (2 teams).
A skeleton track descending on your belly with the head forward.
This sport dates from the end of the 19th century,
even before there was bobsleighing. After appearances on the Olympic program
in 1928 and 1948, the skeleton has been a permanent
part of the Olympic Games since 2002. In 2018 Kim Meylemans had the honor
of being the first Belgian athlete ever to participate
at the Olympic skeleton competition in PyeongChang.
