Perhaps the same thrill that goes into watching men and women hurl themselves in metal tubes down an ice course at alarming speeds is what keeps parents wary of signing their children up for the sport. But there is no doubting that the drama, danger, and grace draw in the masses every four years to witness some of the finest athletes on the planet compete for bronze, silver, and gold.
