One event at the Olympics that make most wonder why anyone would want to try it, would be the Luge. High speeds around sharp turns on pretty much a piece of wood with metal blades.

While most of us will never actually experience what those athletes do while racing, there is a video showing their point-of-view.

Mathew Mortenson took a test run down the Sochi Luge course while wearing a GoPro camera. This was during the construction process in 2012. He reached speeds of 80+ MPH.
