Skeleton schedule for Wednesday, February 9th in the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics

We take a look at the full skeleton schedule on the slate for Wednesday, February 9th at the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.

If watching people fly down a sheet of ice at 80 miles per hour with only their guts and a helmet is your kind of Olympic event, then you should make sure to check out the first two runs of skeleton on Wednesday night at the 2022 Beijing Olympics.

Like the other sliding sports, there’s virtually zero room for error in a sport that requires plenty of precision. Each competitor will fly headfirst down the track at the Yanqing National Sliding Centre four times across two days, and the winner will have the fastest-combined time for all heats. And because no bad runs get dropped, consistency and precision is how the best will walk away with the medals.
