skeleton is an event which was there at the Winter Olympics between 1924 and 1948 and was reintroduced recently in the Olympic programme. It's done on an ice channel like bobsleigh and luge, but the object is very simple, without mechanic intricacies. It simply follows the shape of the competitor's body (hence the name). It is governed by the International Bobleigh&Toboganning Federation. You can check out their website:
