USA 4th in Pyeongchang Relay; Mazdzer 12th in singles

USA Luge doubles Mortensen/Terdiman 7th lead American World Cup effort in So Korea on day 1

Hamlin 10th in pre-Olympic race; Germans clinch doubles, women’s WC titles

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea – For most of the field gathered at next year’s Olympic venue, the number nine might as well be snake eyes.

In fact, the critical turn on the 2018 Olympic luge, bobsled and skeleton track has been dubbed “Dice Roll” by United States doubles slider Anthony Espinoza. Rightfully so, as it took many sleds in the Viessman World Cup doubles and women’s singles races out of contention Saturday. Those who got through the left hand corner cleanly, or relatively unscathed, were rewarded.

Tom Neely, member of first United States Olympic Luge Team, passes away

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. – USA Luge was saddened this week to learn of the unexpected death of Tom Neely, a member of the first Olympic luge team at the 1964 Winter Games in Innsbruck/Igls, Austria.
