    Shea Jr lives up to his name

    Skeleton returned to the Olympic programme in 2002, more than 50 years after its last appearance, when Nino Bibbia had taken a gold medal at St Moritz. With all of the world’s best male and female exponents in action, it proved an instant hit with the fans. In the men’s competition the favourites were Martin Rettl, an air traffic controller from Austria, Switzerland's Gregor Stähli and the American Jim Shea Jr.
