Olympics Bobsled 2-Man Qualifying live stream, start time, TV channel

Everything you need to know to watch the two-man bobsled teams compete in their first two of four runs at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.

There are three total bobsled events at the 2018 Winter Olympics, and the first will be the two-man teams. The sled consists of just a driver and a brakeman.

The United States is sending three two-man teams to Pyeongchang to compete.

  • Codie Bascue with Sam McGuffie
  • Nick Cunningham with Hakeem Abdul-Saboor
  • Justin Olsen with Evan Weinstock

Olsen won an Olympic gold medal at the 2010 games in Vancouver as a push athlete. In Pyeongchang he will be debuting as a pilot. Bascue is making his debut, as well. The inexperience could inspire a lack of confidence, but Bascue could be a talent waiting to take the spotlight on the biggest of stages. Cunningham has piloted before and finished 12th in the four-man at the 2014 Sochi Games.

Like other track sports, the two-man bobsled will consist of four runs split over two days. The fastest cumulative time between all four runs will determine the gold medal winner.

The first run begins at 6:05 a.m. ET on Sunday. The second run will begin at 7:30 a.m. ET.

The event can be watched live via a live stream, but it doesn’t appear that it will be televised live. On the broadcast schedule for the day, NBC Sports lists bobsled amongst the coverage beginning at 8:30 a.m. ET, which will also include freestyle skiing and speed skating.
