Skeleton

Synonymous with speed and exhilaration, skeleton sliders live on the edge of danger as they race down an ice track at breakneck speeds of over 145kph.

Negotiating the corners using their body to manipulate their sleds, all headfirst.

The goal is simple, get from top to bottom as quick as possible, sounds easy right? Skeleton sliders don’t have an accelerator so efficiency is key!

Training

 
 

But how do you train for skeleton in Ireland?

A lot of work goes into preparing for a season of racing. Developing speed, strength and power takes time. Training 5 times a week splitting sessions between gym and track whilst not forgetting aspects like mobility and stability. Plus a little bit of ingenuity and building your own push track.
