Skeleton is a sledding sport founded on the famed Cresta Run at St. Moritz, Switzerland. In skeleton, the sliders lie prone on their sleds, face-down. As there was initially only one skeleton track in the world, the sport could only be held when the Olympic Winter Games were held in St. Moritz, in 1928 and 1948. After its second appearance, it was replaced with luge, but the sport made a comeback in 2002, with events for both men and women. As of 2010, no slider has won more than one gold medal in the sport, but America’s Jack Heaton remarkably won two silver medals 20 years apart, in 1928 and 1948. Skeleton is governed by the International Bobsleigh & Skeleton Federation (IBSF), which was founded as Fédération internationale de bobsleigh et de tobogganing (FIBT) on 23 November 1923 in Paris and renamed in 2015, which is also the International Federation (IF) for bobsledding. As of 2018 IBSF has 70 members.
