Lost Sports of the Winter Olympics: The fast and furry world of sled dog racing
Join host Michele Forto as she talks about dog mushing in the Olympic Games in 1932 on Mushing.
At the 1928 Winter Olympic Games in St. Moritz, Switzerland, demonstration sports – not part of the official program – were included for the first time. With demonstration events ceasing to exist after 1992, in this podcast, Mushing explores some of these ‘lost sports’ of the Winter Games. Dog Mushing was a demo sport at the 1932 Olympic Games in Lake Placid, New York, and some very famous dog drivers competed, including Leonard Seppala and Emile St Goddard.
