    Bobsleigh in Vancouver: quality racing guaranteed

     A combination of G-force, labyrinths and omegas – and a highly competitive field – on the impressive Whistler track should make for some exiting quality racing in Vancouver. At the Olympic Games, the men take part in the two-man and four-man events, while the women – who made their Olympic debut at Salt Lake City in 2002 – compete in a two-woman event. In all three events, medals are awarded to the team which posts the lowest combined time from the four heats, which are held over two days of competition. The aim of getting from start to finish as quickly as possible looks simple, but the 1,450-metre iced track is marked by steep banking, turns and high-speed straights.
