World Cup Luge Slides into Spotlight in Stampede City
CALGARY—Canada’s fastest athletes on ice will arrive back home in Calgary to host the third stop of the 2014 Viessmann Luge World Cup, December 8-13, 2014.
Canada will play host to more than 90 athletes representing 16 countries that will compete in men’s and women’s singles, and doubles races.
Media are invited to attend the Canadian squad’s training session on December 10 at 11 a.m. Interviews will be conducted on the finishing dock, or by phone, at the conclusion of training.
The Canadian Luge Team is beginning the track to Pyeongchang 2018 following a record-setting, yet heart breaking Olympic Games, where the team came fractions of a second short of its first Olympic medal with three fourths, and a fifth-place finish in Sochi, Russia.
