KUSA - The Olympic athletes who compete in events such as skeleton and luge are called "sliders."

The ice, on which they ride at highway speeds, depends on cold weather for the best competition conditions.

As 9NEWS reporter Cheryl Preheim explains in the video above, it can be a challenge in a warm city like Sochi, which is known as a beach resort.
