Medal Predictions for 2018 Winter Olympic Games - Skeleton
Known as the first “sliding” sport, skeleton features single riders plunging down an ice track lying face down. The race begins with a running start at the top of the track, and elite riders often reach speeds of 80 mph. Great Britain is the only country to have won a medal each time skeleton has taken place at the Olympic Games.
