A dogsled race with seven dogs per team was held at the 1932 Olympic Winter Games as a demonstration sport. The race was run over 40.5 km (25.1 miles), lasting two days. Twelve sleddog teams from Canada and the United States took part, with Émile St. Goddard, of Canada, winning the event. Dogsled racing is still a popular sport in northern climates, notably with the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog race, held annually in Alaska to commemorate the 1925 sled dog run to Nome with diphtheria serum. The sport is governed by the International Federation of Sleddog Sports (IFSS), which was founded in 1992 and has 45 members as of 2022.
