ARTIFACT: Rare 1937 St. Moritz Bobsleigh Club FIBT 4-Man Sleigh World Championship participant badge in sterling silver. Badge shows a stylized deco 4-man bobsleigh team atop the famous St. Moritz-Celerina Olympic Bobrun at center in blue & White enamel, and the date 1937 again in high Deco style at bottom. Constructed in 1903, St. Moritz officially opened on New Year's Day 1904 and is the oldest and first bobsleigh track in the world and the only one that is naturally refrigerated. In 1923, the Federation Internationale de Bobsleigh et de Tobogganing (FIBT) was founded and the following year a four-man race took place at the first ever Winter Olympics in Chamonix, France. A two-man event was added at the 1932 Olympics in Lake Placid, U.S.A., a format that has remained to the present.
