About Bobsleigh Skeleton Israel:
Bobsleigh Skeleton Israel (BSI) National Sports Federation of Israel was originally Israel’s Bobsled Team in 2002 when three American Jews decided they wanted to represent Israel in winter sliding sports. They all made aliyah, and then exceeded all expectations, qualifying Israel for two World Championships.
Fast-forward 18 years later to 2020, where one of those founding bobsledders, David Greaves, now President of BSI, is representing seven Israeli bobsled and skeleton athletes.
