Luge Suit

Olympic Luge athlete Mark Grimmette was on-hand last week in San Diego testing out the aerodynamic qualities of suits that will be used during the games in Vancouver. Evidently we have a top notch wind tunnel that can produce 270 mph wind speeds that many engineers and athletes use for testing everything from air planes to boats to bicycles to wind suits. Luge is one of those sports where the winner can be declared by a millisecond so one of these suits could be the clincher.
