Skeleton Team Adds Two World Cup Races to Schedule

The Israeli Skeleton Team is proud to announce that it will be competing in the North American leg of the FIBT World Cup season.  Once the World Cup tour ends its European swing later this month, the best athletes in the world will be competing in:

  • Vancouver (January 29 - February 4) - World Cup race at the Whistler Sliding Center, used during the 2010 Games and widely considered the fastest track in the world;
  • Calgary (February 5 - February 11) - World Cup race at Calgary.  Brad competed on this track in an America's Cup race earlier this season, and hopes to leverage that experience into a competitive finish;
  • Lake Placid (February 13 - February 26) - World Championships in Lake Placid.  In December, Brad earned Israel her first ever medal in Skeleton on this track.  In February, Brad will attempt to make Team Israel a fixture in the world rankings.
World Cup races are televised by NBC Universal, and highlights featured on the FIBT website.  Keep a sharp eye out for any clips of Team Israel, as ours figures to be one of the more compelling ones on the World Cup circuit.
