Bobsledding the sport.
ST. Mortez, Switzerland. It was first played around 1870.
Bobsledding is played when 2 to 6 players will get in a sled and race down a ice track with all different types of turns and bumps.
The length of the game can range from all different times. It all depends on how fast the players go. When the players are done, they get a score on the time it took to finish. The lowest time wins.
There is know real size of the track. Most of the tracks are very narrow, but they can get wider and change all the time.
I found that a good tactic for this sport is to stay in the middle of each track. People seem to go faster in the middle. You have to shift all your weight from time to time to stay off bumps. This can get hard at some points.
The fouls in bobsledding are really obvious. The track only has one team at a tie on it, so the only major fouls are getting out of sled, sabotaging, and tipping over.
The equipment for this sport is very simple. They use a sled, a small helmet, a tight jump suit, and narrow shoes.
There is only two big leagues for this sport. They are the Olympic level and cup tournaments.
Bobsledding change a lot. It went from an east way of travel, to fun racing, to a sport!
