U.S. luge team’s sleds slip away

EASTON, Pa. — Some of the U.S. luge team’s sleds went slip-sliding away down a Pennsylvania road.

USA Luge is seeking the public’s help finding the missing gear. Team marketing director Gordy Sheer said he was returning to his hotel after working at an eastern Pennsylvania ski resort last Friday when five sleds fell out the back of the truck.

The sleds were gone by the time he realized what had happened.

State police said a man in a black truck was seen picking up the sleds and driving off with them. Sheer, a 1998 Olympic silver medalist in doubles, said he doesn’t think the man had any malicious intent.

The training sleds cost $400 to $600 apiece.

Anyone with information about the sleds is asked to contact state police in Bethlehem.
