Bobsled and skeleton races at the Vancouver Olympics will start from their normal locations at the Whistler Sliding Center.

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.
