    The inside view on the art of bobsleigh

    What does it take to succeed in bobsleigh, a sport in which pilots guide their sleds at dizzying speeds between walls of ice and the pushers behind them use brute force to get the sled moving before crouching as low as they can to reduce drag? One man who can answer that question better than most is Germany's Francesco Friedrich, who swept all before him at PyeongChang 2018 and maintained his momentum in the year that followed.
