Vince Vitrano: Not For Broadcast

THIS MUST BE NEW OLYMPIC SPORT

Downhill Skating Would Totally Rule in Olympics

  • Print

If the luge is insane, skeleton (where they essentially luge face first) is for insane people seeking an adrenaline rush. And then there's downhill skating! A category unto itself!

We did a story on Live at Daybreak today about a sport where guys skate down a what appears to be a luge track. Check out dude to the left taking a header! OUTSTANDING!

This would fast become my favorite Winter Olympic competition. No offense to the speed skaters from here at home. I've met so many of them over the years, and I'm so proud they represent our State and Nation well.

But wow! Downhill speed skating! It's said these people reach speeds of 50 plus miles per hour, and that's without a sled! Got to hand it to the Canadians! Nice job, eh!
