In February, the world's best bobsled and skeleton racers will be sliding into Innsbruck/Igls for action-packed competition on the Olympic Bobsleigh Run during the 2016 World Championships.
The fastest Olympic winter sports happen on this ribbon of concrete, steel and ice that zigs-zags down at Innsbruck/Igls—and this competition-proven track plays host to the 2016 Bobsleigh & Skeleton World Championships. The world’s best bobsled and skeleton racers will battle it out on one of the world’s toughest tracks, the Olympic Bobsleigh Run at Innsbruck/Igls from February 8 to 21, 2016. 280 athletes from 28 different nations will compete for their chance at glory on the run in Igls that was built for the 1976 Olympic Winter Games at Innsbruck.
There will be fierce and thrilling competitions for fans and spectators during the Bob and Skeleton World Championships. Off ice, action will offer everything from live acts and shows, medals presentations, legend’s races, child activity programs and after-race-parties. Happily, there will be shuttles to all races and events. Buses will take you directly from Innsbruck to the Olympic Bobsleigh Run in Igls for race spectating.
For the two weeks of the event, Tirol’s lively capital Innsbruck will serve as the hub of the nightly medals presentation. Each race day, fans will have a chance to celebrate and congratulate the fastest on the icy track that day with the official Bob and Skeleton World Championships medals ceremony at the heart of the old town district. February 14, 2016 at 7:00pm for the women’s and men’s bobsleigh doubles; February 19 and 20 at 7:30pm for the women’s and men’s skeleton events and February 21 at 7:00pm for the 4-man bobsleigh competitions.
