Last week the sixth round of BMW IBSF World Cup took place in Whistler, Canada. The World Cup starts in late November and ends in late February, and has several rounds. Every year the number of rounds varies between 7 and 9. One round includes five races: men's and women's skeleton, two 2-man bobsleigh runs and one 2-woman bobsleigh run. On January 23, the second men's bobsleigh run took place, and two teams placed first, from Switzerland and from South Korea. The second South Korean team was not so lucky this race, as they were disqualified.In the photo: Brakeman Kim Keun-bo, of South Korea, falls out of his sled during the race.
