World Championships are in the Morning!!!

Hello Team Pikus Pace and Welcome to the Skeleton World Championships in St. Moritz/Celerina, Switzerland.

Inside Scoop

See below for the viewing schedule and youtube links.  Here is what is important for the next 2 days and how it works.

  -Skeleton World Championships is a 2 day event which consists of 4 runs (2 runs each day).
  -All 4 runs are added together to name the World Champion
  -Noelle needs a top 4 finish by the end of Heat 4 on Friday (the last run and end of the race).
  -If Noelle gets a 4th place finish or better she as an automatic bye onto the US team next year!  This will                   pretty much ensure that she will be going to the Olympics in Sochi (assuming no bobsleds come out of the      track at her direction and ensuring that no other bizarre accident takes place).
  - Have fun watching, don't lose too much sleep and I will keep the blog up to date with any important information that I come across.
