Introduction
Bobsleigh
 
Winter Wonder
 The Austrian army were called in ahead of the 1964 Olympics to transport 20,000 cubic metres of snow to help freeze the bob run

The Olympic bobsleigh competition consists of three events: two-man, four-man and two-woman.

The men's Olympic bobsleigh competition lasts two days, with two runs contested on each day.

The competition consists of four runs timed to .01 seconds.

The final standings are determined by the total time over the four runs; the winner is the sled with the lowest aggregate time.

The women's Olympic bobsleigh competition has two runs contested on the same day.

Both runs are timed to .01 seconds and the final standings are determined by the total time over the two runs; the winner is the sled with the lowest aggregate time.

If two teams complete the competition in a tie, they are awarded the same place.
