2006 Skeleton


Held for the first time since 1948 Winter Games, the event's name is derived from the prototype of today's sleds, which resembled human skeletons. Women's event made its Olympic debut in 2002. Similar to luge except athletes lie stomach-down and head-first. Two runs held on one day, and medals are awarded for lowest aggregate times.
