World Cup Para-Bobsleigh Racing Comes to Lake Placid Dec. 1-2

Tuesday, November 14, 2017

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. --- Catch all of the excitement of IBSF World Cup Para-Bobsleigh racing, Dec. 1-2, in Lake Placid, N.Y. Hurtling down the Mt. Van Hoevenberg Olympic Sports Complex track, these athletes will reach speeds of more than 60 miles-per-hour, while pulling as many as 3Gs in the corners.

Athletes compete on their own in specially designed 'monobobs.' Trying to clock the fastest time down the track, men and women race against one another in the same discipline.
The International Bobsleigh & Skeleton Federation (IBSF) is the international governing body for Para bobsleigh. In September 2016, the IPC provisionally accepted Para-bobsleigh to be included in the Beijing 2022 Paralympic Winter Games.
