French Tourist Tries The La Plagne Olympic Bobsleigh Run, Does Not Enjoy It (VIDEO)

The Olympic bobsleigh run in La Plagne, France, is 1,507.5m long, contains 19 turns and boasts a total drop of 124.5m. In other words, it's truly very, very scary.

As card-carrying cowards here at Huffington Post UK Comedy, there's not a snowball's chance in hell that we'd ever jump in a bobsleigh and bomb down it, ever, ever, ever.

But one French tourist did - and what's worse, the on-board camera was on at the time, and so the resulting footage is nothing short of astonishing.

"LA VITESSE! LA VITESSSE!", he screams. Poor dear. Vladimir Putin can do this in his sleep, you know.
