Event 4: Bobsleigh
This week the Thunderbolts took part in the bobsleigh event for the 2018 Winter Marblelympics. Following the Snowballs’ impressive run of 14.43 seconds which placed them into 3rd place, Bolta, Bolty, Boltu and Bolto knew they would have to pull something special here. They led their descent with a quick start of the line, which can be accredited to Bolta’s idea to have the team lean backwards and then to thrust forward the instant the hatch opened. They then proceeded with a professional 7 seconds down the course, taking note of the edges which had led to the downfall of some other competitors. However, unlike any other team, the Thunderbolts, intentionally or not, reduced their speed at about 8 seconds down the course to reposition themselves and to set up a speedy descent. This investment proved worthy as they continued to speed down the rest of the course and past the finish line at 13.09 seconds. #BANG
