GOLDEN HUNDREDWEIGHT VERY HARD VICTORY!

Bobsleigh competitions ended causing a true sensation — both gold medals (two-men and four-men) were achieved by newbies of the Olympics — athletes of the FRG. Interesting fact, the German team won “gold” because of the super-heavy weight of its athletes — two-men sled weighed more than 235 kg, four-men sled — more than 460 kg. By the way, after the Olympics, weight limitation of athletes were introduced, weight of an athlete should not exceed 100 kg.
