I expect that the Canadian skeleton athletes are softies, given that the best/newest track in Canada is near Vancouver.
It's the best winter Olympic sport, by the way.
One of the things I'm curious about is whether the bobsleigh and skeleton "World Cups" will now stop in Asia. Japan built a sliding track in Nagano but it's never been part of the World Cups, as far as I know. It gets very little use and is in rather poor shape. With tracks in Sochi, Nagano and now Pyeongchang, it's likely time to expand the circuit beyond Canada/US and the three stops in Western Europe - although that could make touring costs much more expensive in a sport with very little funding support for athletes.
Interesting to see Yoon Sung-bin won the recent World Cup season, beating out Latvia's Martins Dukurs. The missus and I saw Yoon at the North American Cup (third division) at Whistler a little over five years ago, back when he was just a few weeks into his skeleton career. They were selling tickets for the World Cup (first division), giving free entry for the Intercontinental Cup (second division), and not even bothering to promote the North American Cup. Naturally, being the sport saddo that I am, we went to the latter. The mountain didn't bother to leave the ski lift on for people returning down to Whistler Village, and since we didn't drive, we had to walk down the mountain streets in almost pitch-black. It was so cold that our phone batteries gave out and we couldn't use them as a flashlight on our way down.
