  • Description

    At Lake Placid, New York, at the Olympic bobsled run, now one mile in length.

    A Visnews cameraman made this run to bring to you, sitting comfortably in your chairs, all the thrills and fears a bobsledder sees during his run. This all downhill course, considered to be the fastest in the world, can produce on famous "Shady Corner" about a 2G pull out.

    Our cameraman brings you a view that only a person on the actual run can see, through the treacherous Zig Zag course, round "Shady Corner" and down straight on a run where an all night rain had made it slick in some spots and in others, sheer ice. This run should affect even the most hardy.
