How is the sport skeleton a dangerous sport?

Skeleton is dangerous for a variety of reasons. First, the sleds that skeleton sliders use lack brakes and steering. The sliders have to use their own body weight to help steer and their own feel to brake. Secondly, when sliding down a track, sledders can reach high speeds. The faster they are going, the more difficult it is for for the sledder to try to control his or her momentum and speed. Finally, in competitive skeleton, the conditions of the track itself can deteriorate as more and more slide down the course. This puts sledders that are near the end of the running order face a disadvantage and more potentially dangerous elements.
