Luge originated in Switzerland around the 16 century. The rules of luge are the following: lie on your back on a tiny sled with feet sticking first and go down an icy hill at 140 km/h. There is usually only one player per sled but there can be more than one player on a single sled. You can ride double on a sled.  The luge runs are 40 to 60 seconds.

To score in luge it is the average of timed runs. Each luge track is different but they are less than one mile long and have 14- 20 curves The track drops 300 to 400 feet and is 3 meters wide. The basic strategy is to complete the runs in the shortest time and you have to be touching sled at finish line. You can get disqualified for breaking regulations with equipment like sled weight or equipment issues.

You can also get hurt if you do it wrong. The equipment is a bridge, gloves, grip, helmet, kufen, pod, racing suit, shoes, steels and weight vest.

The luge is in the Olympic Games, international games and Nations and World Cup. They have local club leagues. There is street luge too.

Luge has changed over time. They have artificial tracks now and some are refrigerated. The equipment is safer. They have protective walls on track.
