Bobsled and skeleton races at the Vancouver Olympics will start from their normal locations at the Whistler Sliding Center.
Luge courses were shortened following the death of a Georgian luge athlete during a training run. Moving the bobsled and skeleton starts is not feasible, considering athletes in both disciplines need room to run at the start.
Bobsled and skeleton competitors will be given the option of training from a lower start if they prefer but must take at least two runs from their normal start, as is the case before virtually all international events.
Well that is some good news let these guys run.
