This sport which is very much similar to the luge and the bobsleigh was parto f the programme at the Saint Moritz games in 1928 and 1948 as a tribute to the ski resort where the sport was invented.For the Salt Lake City games in 2002, skeleton will be definitively become part of the winter Olympics programme. Like in the bobsleigh event, competitors start the race running to gain momentum and therefore speed, and like in the luge event, they they slide along only a few centimetres from the track's surface, but, unlike luge, they ride on their sled on their stomach. They manoeuvre their steel sled by shifting their body weight and they brake using their feet. This strictly individual event is practised by men and women.
