World Championships Recap

In front of friends, family, and the whole Israeli Bobsleigh & Skeleton Federation crew, Brad Chalupski and Team Israel's inaugural World Cup season slid to an end Saturday night in Lake Placid.

Brad's three runs were good for a 29th place finish, and he matched his personal push record with a 5.10 start on his second heat.

His newly-painted Magen David helmet set him apart from the rest of the pack in the near-blizzard conditions, as did his raucous pack of fans (one of whom announced Brad's first run with a shofar).

If you missed the live broadcast, Brad's runs can be viewed through FIBT TV at http://eurovision.digotel.com/fibt/index.html

1st Run: ~ 1:10:30 into the video
2nd Run: ~ 58:30
3rd Run: ~ 59:30

Were you there at LP? Or were you cheering from the warmth of your own couch? Either way, send in your photos from the race to pbnskeleton@gmail.com.
