Welcome to the official Web site of Tony Benshoof. I am a long time member of the US National Luge team (21 years) and a member of the past 2 Olympic teams in Men's Singles Luge. I have dedicated over 1/2 of my life to the sport and have a tremendous passion for speed and finding those extra thousandths of a second it takes to be one of the fastest Luge athletes in the world.


This web site was developed to allow friends, family, sponsors and fans an insight to me and the exciting sport of Luge. You'll find a comprehensive collection of Luge photos, videos and information as well as up-to-date info on me and the team as I head toward the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, BC
Luge is not only the fastest sport on ice , it is one of the most popular and mysterious. Hopefully the information in this site will dispel some myths while helping people understand this exciting Olympic sport. We reach speeds of 98+ miles per hour, hit up to 5 G-forces and reach the bottom of a mile-long track in less than a minute. Often times races come down to a hundredth or even a thousandth of a second which is less than the blink of an eye.

Also, Please check out my photography page. You will find a collection of my favorite shots I have taken over the years and it will be updated on a regular basis as the season unwinds. Photography is a way for me to unwind, be creative and help support my training/traveling/living expenses through photograph sales. If you see something you really like, please consider contacting me for modest prices of prints, files and/or rights.


Thanks for stopping by!
