Luge – A Heart Stopping Athlete’s Point Of View Video
One event at the Olympics that make most wonder why anyone would want to try it, would be the Luge. High speeds around sharp turns on pretty much a piece of wood with metal blades.
While most of us will never actually experience what those athletes do while racing, there is a video showing their point-of-view.
Mathew Mortenson took a test run down the Sochi Luge course while wearing a GoPro camera. This was during the construction process in 2012. He reached speeds of 80+ MPH.
