BOBSLED

February 11, 1980

Time was when bobsledding was dominated by East and West Germany, Switzerland, Italy and Austria. This year, as the recent European championships showed, the sport shakes down to two: Switzerland and East Germany. Look for record times on the remodeled old Lake Placid run, now, at 1,557 meters, the world's longest refrigerated course and definitely the most dangerous. A U.S. two-man team currently holds the speed record (1:03.18), but it will melt away under the red-hot Swiss sleds.
