Olympa Bob Run St. Moritz - Celerina
Here, it´s all about speed, adrenalin and the knack of negotiating tricky bends. Feel the thrill at the practice runs and the competition (skeleton, 2-man/woman bob & 4-man/woman bob), and cheer the daredevil sports(wo)men on during their riveting race

As far back as 1888, the press reported on a new kind of racing vehicle: two toboggans connected together and equipped with a steering mechanism. Soon, the bobsleigh became the darling of St. Moritz?s sports-loving British guests, who refined the new contraption as a multi-seat toboggan with an iron garden rake as a brake. Since then, this thrilling sport has developed enormously, and athletes now routinely achieve speeds of up to 130 km/h as they hurtle down the 1,722 metres of the Olympia Bob Run from St. Moritz to Celerina. Today, this challenging track with the notorious Horseshoe Bend is the oldest bobsleigh run in the world, and the only natural-ice track to host international races. Over the course of its 125-year history, it has served as a race venue for two Winter Olympics and 24 World Championships ? as well as the BMW IBSF Word Cup races.
