Luge is the French word for sled, and historical findings point to the existence of sleds as early as AD 800. The sport was introduced to the Winter Olympic Games in 1964, with both men's and women's events and a doubles event. Doubles is technically a mixed event, but is almost always competed by a team of two men.
