    Olympics Day 12 Event: Ladies' Bobsleigh

    Your Day 12 Event is : Ladies' Bobsleigh
    Your Day 12 Pick is due Feb. 24, 5:00 PM PST, 8:00 PM US Eastern Time

    About the event: Olympic Women's Bobsleigh is a relatively new event in the sporting world, having just begun competition in the 1990's, and making its official Olympic debut at the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics. There is a World Cup Circuit that the top athletes compete in every year, but all of them are looking to peak for the Olympics that happen every four years.

    The sport involves teams of two women making timed runs in a sled down a narrow, icy and twisting track. They begin by running with the sled for the first 50 meters to gain speed (which can eventually go beyond 150 km/h) and then hop in the back of the sled and try to be as aerodynamic as possible in order to achieve maximum speed. This is important because times are measured to the .001 of a second and that can often be the difference between finishing on the podium or not.

    Among the participants (NOTE: because nations have multiple teams in bobsleigh, participants are listed by Steerer's name):

    Sabina Hafner SUI
    Kaillie Humphries CAN
    Sandra Kiriasis GER
    Cathleen Martini GER
    Nicola Minichiello GBR
    Erin Pac USA
    Shauna Rohbock USA
    Claudia Schraam GER
    Helen Upperton CAN
    With Lucas Pouille at Indian Wells (2018)

    Oohh, Cathleen Martini. That's a hard one for me to pass up. But I have to go with a Canadian whenever they're a legitimate medal hope.
