St. Moritz, the cradle of bobsleigh and skeleton, made a decisive contribution to the further development of this fast-paced sport with the introduction of the first para-monobob. The highly specialised piece of sports equipment was first used by Swiss Paralympic gold medallist Heinz Frei in January 2012. At that time, only a handful of athletes dared to take to the fast ice, but since then the para-bobsleigh scene has grown steadily from year to year.
In addition to this sporting highlight, spectators can expect extensive side events at the IBSF World Championships. All information on the competitions, the side events and ticketing can be found at www.wm2023.ch.
