Sled Dog Racing

Hooray for dogs! Sled dog racing is exactly what it sounds like, and youre probably used to seeing the sport in the context of the Iditarod in Alaska. Whereas those dogs run for days and cover over 1,000 miles, the Olympic sled dog racing demonstration was a much more humble affair. Taking place at the 1932 Games in Lake Placid, the single appearance of sled dog racing at the Olympics was a fleeting one. The event saw two races on a 25.1-mile course. Six dogs pulled each sled and times ranged from two to three-and-a-half hours. Only two countries participated: Canada and the United States. Canada won by less than two minutes.
