About Skeleton :

Skeleton is one of the sliding types of speed sports events and the athlete, lying head first face down on the sled, speeds down a 1,200 – 1,500m ice track.

Skeleton is a winter sliding sport in which a person rides a small sled, known as a skeleton bobsled (or -sleigh), down a frozen track while lying head first face down. Unlike other sliding sports of bobsleigh and luge, the race always involves single riders.

The length of the track used for this event is 1,200 – 1,500m with the average slope inclination is 8 – 15% and the radius of the curve has been decided to be 20m or longer.
