How It Works

1994 Golds

Critical Moment

Venue: "Spiral," the first artificial ice track in Asia, is in the foothills of Mount Iizuna in the Asakawa district in the northern part of Nagano City. The 1,700-meter track has an elevation of 113 meters and encompasses 15 curves. 1994 Golds: Two-man, Switzerland (Gustav Weder and Donat Acklin in 3:30:81); four-man, Germany (Harald Czudaj, Karestan Brannasch, Olaf Hampel, Alexander Szelig; 3:27:78). Critical Moment: Finding the perfect racing line is the key to bobsledding: The driver struggles with a violently shaking bobsled to keep it on the path that gives the fastest time down the run. In turns, the driver must keep the sled high enough to maintain speed but low enough to avoid going extra distance. KRT How It Works: Nuts and Bolts: Speeds can reach 90 miles per hour, and runs take less than a minute. When braking, the crew feels five times the force of gravity. History: Although sleds have been around for centuries, bobsled racing didn't begin until 1877 in Davos, Switzerland, where a steering mechanism was attached to a toboggan.

SLIDERS OF BYGONE DAYS Bobsledding was invented by a group of Englishmen vacationing in Switzerland in 1890. Their aim was to create a sled that could carry two or more people down a snow covered road between St Moritz and Celerina. The new sport immediately caught on and a special track, complete with banked curves, made of ice, was constructed next to the road in 1902. The first races were for 5 and 6 people and a requirement of the competition was that each crew included at least one woman. This requirement was dropped in the 1930s and the disciplines altered to 2 and 4 man events.
Here is what those early sliders had to deal with: The run was one and a half miles long with no lips on the curves or walls on the straightaways. The ice wasn't nearly as smooth or as hard as it is now and the runners would gouge the unrefrigerated curves with every trip. The curves were slushed on stone and the straightaways on bare ground which would shift and heave with the frost, effectively creating a new drive line with every temperature change. The run was wide enough to allow a sled to get into precarious predicaments on the straightaways with usually disasterous consequences. The sleds weren't exactly high-tech either but they came shooting down the mile and a half run faster than any sane person would care to travel under those circumstances. There was no suspension for the runners and the steering was done with wheels, which gave less control and feel of the run than the ropes that the europeans used. (Americans have gone to using ropes exclusively over the last few decades.) There was no protection on the sides of the sled and injured shoulders and elbows were accepted as just part of the sport. You held onto canvas straps with rubber balls attached and hoped for the best as you careened down the course while wearing a leather helmet which you knew wouldn't be much help in protecting your noggin in the likely event of an 81.

      Modern bobsled races are competitions between two-person or four-person teams. Bobsleds have the same basic components whether they are built to hold two or four athletes. Each bob has:
      • A steel frame A fiberglass hull that's closed in the front and open in the back, also called a cowling A movable set of front runners A fixed set of rear runners Collapsible push-bars for driver and crewmen Fixed push-bars for brakemen A jagged metal brake on a lever, used only after the bob crosses the finish line A steering system
      Warm Runnings
      Uphill mountain bike races
      are held on some bobsled runs in the off-season. The Federation Internationale de Bobsledding et de Tobogganing (FIBT) sets rules for the composition and dimensions of each of these components, as well as the total weight of bobsleds. Bobsled manufacturers work closely with bobsled teams and designers to make the best sled design.
