Weird Olympic Sports
The luge is a narrow sled that speeds down mountains at faster speeds than both the skeleton and the bobsled. Its inclusion as a weird event lies in its extreme danger. People have died. Enough said. Olympians competing in this event lie on their backs on a sled as they hurl themselves down an icy track, and pray to whatever god they favor that they dont end in a mess of bone and blood. The pairs event is even better, where your teammate lies on top of you so you dont die cold and alone. This suicide mission is such a popular event in the Winter Olympics that they decided to expand the insanity in 2014 with the luge team relay event.
