Bloomex supports Bobsleigh CANADA Skeleton as they speed towards gold!


In 1877, the Swiss decided to attach a steering mechanism to a toboggan, giving birth to the first ever bobsleigh. Skeleton got its start in 1892 when Englishman, Mr. Child, surprised his friends with a new sled made mostly from metal and shot down the hill face first. Canada has been competing in this adrenaline pumping sport at the world level since the first Olympic Winter Games in 1924. Athletes plummet down a 1300m track made of ice at 150 km/h, navigating at least 15 curves and every millisecond counts. This is not a sport for the faint of heart!
 
Canada will be competing at the BMW IBSF World Cup 2018 Games in Whistler, November 24-25 at the Whistler Sliding Centre.
