Take a Virtual Luge Ride at the Sochi Olympics in This First-Person Point-of-View Video
If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to be an Olympic Luger, this video makes it possible. Matt Mortensen represents the United States in the Men’s Doubles luge, and attached a GoPro camera for a ride down the track.
You can get a feel for how fast they are actually going as you see spectators and timers in a blur as you go by.
In case you were wondering how Matt Mortensen and his luge parnter Preston Griffall turned out in the games, they ended up finishing 14th. Even though they may not have one, they definitely had the coolest YouTube video from Sochi so far!
