Winter Olympics Bobsled Schedule 2018: Dates & Times


While the 2018 Winter Olympics are underway, bobsled (or bobsleigh) athletes will be forced to wait around for one week before they can begin their competitions in PyeongChang, South Korea.

The first bobsledding event does not take place until Sunday, Feb. 18 with runs 1 and 2 of the two-man bobsled. Medals will be handed out the following day, before the women’s bobsled kicks off. The final bobsled event of the 2018 Games will be held on Saturday, Feb. 24 with the final runs for the four-man competition.

All bobsledding events will be held at the Alpensia Sliding Centre near Pyeongchang.

Nigeria will be making history in the event, with the nation’s first-ever bobsled team competing in the women’s tournament. The team is comprised of Seun Adigun, Akuoma Omeoga and Ngozi Onwumere.

Onwumere carried Nigeria’s flag at the Opening Ceremony.

“When we first heard the story of these three remarkable athletes who make up the Nigerian Women’s Bobsled Team, we knew we had to add them to Team Visa. As former track stars, they are redefining history for their country, and we wanted to support them on this journey by providing them with a platform to inspire others and share their story,” said Chris Curtin, chief brand and innovation marketing officer at Visa, via PEOPLE.

Every event throughout the PyeongChang Olympics will be aired on the NBC family of networks, with live coverage available online and on your mobile device through the NBC and NBC Sports Live Extra apps so you never miss a second of the action.
