#ThrowbackThursday Remembering Winterberg
With the bobsled and skeleton World Championships taking place in Winterberg, Germany this weekend and next weekend, we wanted to share some memories from the track as told by former bobsled athlete Earl Harrington.
Want to take a ride in a bobsled?
Have you ever been curious what it’s like to race down an icy track at 85 mph? Perhaps you’ve seen bobsled races on television, or maybe you have attended a race in person. If you have, you were probably wondering how you get into a sport that doesn’t have high school or college teams. Maybe you thought it would be cool to give the sport a try?

A pioneer of women's bobsled
As Jean Prahm, formerly Jean Racine, and her brakeman, Gea Johnson, took to the ice for the 2002 Salt Lake City Winter Olympic Games, there was an unusual vibe in the Park City, Utah air. Bobsled, a sport with a deep and rich tradition, made its initial Olympic presence at the 1924 Chamonix Games. But this time the competition looked different with a new discipline: women’s bobsled.
Lauryn Williams gives bobsled another go
