Jump to: navigation, search

The FIBT World Championships, part of the Fédération Internationale de Bobsleigh et de Tobogganing (FIBT - International Bobsleigh and Tobogganing Federation in (French)), have taken place on an annual basis in non-Winter Olympic years since 1930. A two-man event was included in 1931 with a combined championship occurring in 1947. Men's skeleton was introduced as a championship of its own in 1982 while women's bobsleigh and skeleton events were introduced in 2000. Both the women's bobsleigh and skeleton events were merged with the men's bobsleigh events at the 2004 championships. A mixed team event, consisting of one run each of men's skeleton, women's skeleton, 2-man bobsleigh, and 2-women bobsleigh debuted in 2007.

The 1933 FIBT World Championship event was not held. The 1966 FIBT World Championship event in Cortina d'Ampezzo was abandoned following the death of Toni Pensperger of West Germany during competition. A posthumous gold medal was given to Pensperger, Ludwig Siebert, Helmut Werzer, and Roland Ebert. The 1967 FIBT World Championship event in Alpe d'Huez was cancelled to insufficient conditions of the track caused by high temperatures.
