Empire of Sports, the first 3D MCM (Massively Connected Multisport) game, has today announced a partnership with the International Federation of Bobsleigh and Tobogganing (FIBT) to host the first Virtual World Skeleton Championships online ever. This tournament will be held in Empire of Sports until 28th March 2009.
Skeleton is an extreme winter sport in which athletes have to quickly run down icy tracks on gravity-powered sleds. Skeleton requires the athlete to be in a particular position during the race, as a player's chin is millimetres far from the ice below. This discipline has been an international sport for over 100 years and has just been introduced to the Winter Olympics.
