America’s Olympic Luge Sleds Are Missing

The sleds could be held for a luge ransom.

USA Luge athletes were training at the Blue Mountain Ski Area & Resort in Palmerton, Pennsylvania, and at the end of the session they loaded up their sleds into a U-Haul trailer and took off back to a local hotel. The sleds didn’t make it.

On the journey back to the hotel, the rear door of the U-Haul opened and the training sleds — worth up to $800 dollars apiece — came tumbling out, according to the Express-Times. Before the team realized what had happened and returned to the area, a mysterious person in a black truck stumbled upon the sleds in the road. The man asked someone who lived nearby who the sleds belonged to, and then loaded them in his truck and took off. By the time the USA Luge contingent returned, they were gone.

Local police are on the case and ask anyone with information to come to the authorities, and USA Luge is hopeful the man in the black truck will eventually emerge and give back the sleds.

SPREAD THE WORD. FIND AMERICA’S SLEDS!
