Covering Aidan Kelly's Journey to the 2014 Winter Olympics
When most people think of winter sports, they probably think of figure skating, snowboarding, and skiing, but usually not luge. In simple terms, it is extreme sledding. The racer propels themselves down an icy track on a specially made sled, during which they can reach incredible speeds of up to around 100 miles per hour. Most people are afraid of going that fast in a car, imagine going that fast - body exposed and on a very slick track! It is definitely not for the faint of heart. However, Kelly is not the average person. As he stated in an interview, "I've always liked dangerous stuff. I guess there's nothing else that really compares to riding a sled down ice at 90 miles per hour. It's a pretty extreme form of sledding."
