FIBT Bobsled and Skeleton World Championships

Utah Olympic Park presents the World Junior Championship Bobsleigh, Skeleton at Park City’s Olympic Park January 31st – February 6th, 2011

Bobsledding, FIBT Bobsled and Skeleton Championships, Federation Internationale de Bobsleigh, Park City, Utah, Olympic Park, Winter ActivitiesBoth men and women compete in the sport of bobsleigh, a sport that combines speed, power and agility. There are two person races for men and women. Men also have a four-man event. Bobsleigh is one of the original sports in the Olympic Winter Games.

In skeleton, there are separate racing disciplines for men and women. In World Cup competitions two heats are held over one day.  At the FIBT World Championships (held annually except in the Olympic year), four heats are held over two days.

The Federation Internationale de Bobsleigh et de Tobogganing (FIBT) was founded on November 23, 1923 by the delegates of Great Britain, France and Switzerland, and the representatives of Canada and the United States, meeting at an International Congress in Paris, France. The FIBT headquarters is in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Bobsleigh as an organized and active sport thrived from before the turn of the century. However, it was the advent of the 1924 Winter Games and the acceptance of Bobsleigh as an Olympic sport that prompted the formation of a federation.

Time Schedules: TBA 1/31/11, 2/1/11, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
