  • More power to them. I can't even go down a water slide without fear that my head is going hit some invisible object and decapitate myself.

  • Yeah and what about skiing, I can strap on some skis too. And skating, I used to skate, I could do jumps and spins. Seriously there is a lot more to bobsleigh than just riding down the track. The start can be very crucial to getting a good time, the sleigh needs to be steered, both by the driver and by the other members shifting their body weight. Have you never seen footage of bobsleigh crashes? They can be pretty serious.

  • That's not bobsled, that's luge. And if it's so damn easy, why did it kill someone yesterday?

  • That's right, I never even thought that the op meant luge. Still very difficult and very dangerous.

  • So killing someone makes luge a legitimate sport? It's ridiculous and deadly. It should not be a sport but then again most of that stuff is ridiculous. Razors on your feet and cutting up ice is a sport, strapping wax boards onto your feet so you can fly down a moutain is a sport. I can't watch any of it without laughing or being disgusted.

  • So then anon :08, what is a sport in your opinion? These athletes work hard, really hard to excel at their sport. It's too bad that their hard work disgusts you. I personally find it admirable that they've shown the commitment, the dedication, the discipline to become top caliber athletes, and at quite young ages for many of them. Your attitude is what I find disgusting.
