Their speed would drop seriously from the additional aeronautical drag of all those goose bumps.

Not really into winter olympics, but I did watch the short-track speedskating, which was hairy, and the womens luge which I had not watched before; which made me think: is it in some way advantageous for thse luge-ladies to be a little on the er, shall we say, portly side?. Is it a case of down-force overcoming a lack of aerodynamics? I swear one of them had her body-panels shivering as she went through mach 1.

Can't have sissy girls in theBobsled and Speedskating,in the Luge they need something for the Gravity to tug on,(no Kate Moss's)they have to have muscle on them to drive off the ice, good Genes !!!

Sort of, but let's not forget the Russians, Norweigians, Swedes, and a lot of other nations that play the sport very well.

Other than hockey, I'd have to say my favorite winter olympic event would be the Jamaican Bobsledders. And not just because of the movie.
