The International Luge Federation FIL is also present in the „try a sport“-area with its own stand. On Saturday, January 11th, 680 visitors were counted at the FIL booth. The most prominent visitor was FIL President Josef Fendt, the World Champion in 1970 and 1974 was particularly impressed by the luge experience with VR glasses (virtual reality). Virtual reality, or VR for short, is the representation of reality in a computer-generated environment.
