Bobsled

Bobsled is a winter sport, also known as bobsleigh (the official name used in the Winter Olympic Games), in which teams make timed runs down narrow, twisting, banked purpose-built tracks in a gravity-powered, steerable sled.

Women's bobsled made its Olympic debut at the 2002 Winter Olympic Games.
