Austrian Women's Skeleton sledder, Janine Flock, exits Curve 4 during the first heat of the Viessmann FIBT Bob & Skeleton World Cup 2013/14, Park City, Utah.
Skeleton sledders are insane. Adrenaline junkie crazy people. It was -28C on top of that mountain. My camera HATED me. My viewfinder completely frosted over and it was all I could do to keep that from happening to my lens. But it meant the ice was hard and fast and track records fell like anvils from the sky. Despite the cold, it was gorgeous and the sport and the athletes are amazing, loved the work.
I love my job, and I'm very fond of the athletes I work with. All images are ©copyright 1pen and my sports media company.You may NOT use, replicate, manipulate, or modify this image without my permission. All Rights Reserved.
