          Have you come upon the Winter Olympics and heard about the winter sport that is called the skeleton?  In case you have been wondering, I have not but I did do  research to learn more about it.   “Skeleton” is a winter sport featured in the Winter Olympics that includes the competitor riding head-first, and flat out put their face lying down, on a flat sled.  When doing the skeleton, the competitor mainly  sprints on an ice track because that allows the sled to gain speed. It was first introduced   in 1928, at  the Winter Olympics in St. Moritz. Skeleton was reintroduced in 2002 at the same event  The sport is often confused with luge, which is a form of sled racing and the competitor rides on its back, feet-first.  Often using the same courses, the racing physics are not identical. Great Britain is the only nation to have won a medal every time skeleton was featured in the Olympic Games, along with the fact that they have  won a medal in each of the four contests of Women’s Skeleton, since its introduction, on each occasion with a different sledder. In my opinion,  I believe that the Skeleton is a fun Winter Olympic sport to do.  Also, I sincerely believe  that it would be exciting for them, if they were to compete with others.  With this information, it is in my best interest that you know a little bit about Skeleton, the Winter Olympic sport and I would also like to know what you, the reader, think about it. know about Winter Olympic sport, the Skeleton.
