ABOUT LUGE

Luge is a Winter Olympic sport in which one or two people lie on their back on a sled and race feet first down an ice- covered course. The sled with the fastest combined time over a number of runs wins the competition. Luge is the French word for small sled.

CLOTHING AND EQUIPMENT

Competitors wear a tight sort of one piece outfit, a helmet with the eyes covered, tight gloves and shoes that grip to the ice. They ride on a sled that is about 4 feet long (1.2 metres).

Luge

  • Well presented Ellen. Good graphics and information. But you need to add transitions and animations and hopefully music. Also no citation of where information was found. I also think you could try to make it a bit longer. What about the names of winners at the Olympics, or even a video, if you can find it of the luge race. 17/5/14

  • Excellent effort with editing, although the sound is a bit ……. Great transitions and animations. Well done with historical information. Still no citation about where information was found. Please save this version into Collaboration folder. 20.5.14
