St. Moritz lands 2023 IBSF World Championships

The International Bobsleigh & Skeleton Federation has awarded hosting rights for its 2023 World Championships to the Swiss resort town of St. Moritz.

IBSF delegates voted for the Swiss track’s bid at the federation’s annual congress in Prague, Czech Republic.

The Olympia Bobrun St. Moritz Celerina is the world’s only natural sliding track. It has hosted the bobsleigh races of the 1928 and 1948 winter Olympic Games, as well as 23 World Championships, the last in 2013. Congress delegates additionally approved St. Moritz as host of the 2021 Junior World Championships.

In addition, Sochi (Russia), Whistler (Canada) and Winterberg (Germany) were announced as bidders for the 2024 World Championships, with the host to be decided at next year’s Congress.

Following this year’s event in Whistler from February 25 to March 10, the World Championships will be held in Altenberg, Germany in 2020.
