Poland Olympic Bobsled Team NOC Sports Pin from the 1998 Winter Olympic Games held in Nagano, Japan. New. These pins have a clear epoxy dome which makes them hard to scan correctly. There is no back-stamp but they come from a long time collector in Poland.

1998 Nagano-In 1998 the Winter Olympic Games returned to Japan after 26 years. Snowboarding debuted as an official discipline. Curling was returned to the Olympic Winter program this time with a tournament for both men and women. For the first time, the men's ice hockey tournament was opened to all professionals and women’s ice hockey was introduced to the Olympic program. The inspired team from the Czech Republic scored a surprise victory. Björn Dählie won three gold medals in Nordic skiing to become the first winter athlete to earn eight career Olympic gold medals and twelve total medals. Tara Lipinski won the women’s figure skating title to become, at 15, the youngest champion in an individual event in the history of the Winter Olympics. The spirit of the Games was exemplified by Alpine skier Hermann Maier. Maier survived a spectacular fall in the downhill, recovered and earned gold medals in both the super-G and the giant slalom.

Bobsled-Bobsled racing was developed in search of the ultimate thrill by the 19th century. Considered the world's first sliding sport, skeleton, originated in the Swiss town of St. Moritz in the late 1800s. The first competition was held in 1884. Riders raced down the road from St. Moritz to Celerina, where the winner received a bottle of champagne. It wasn't until 1887 that riders began competing in the prone position used today. The sport took its name in 1892, when a new sled made mostly of metal was introduced. People thought it looked like a skeleton. The sport's governing body, the Federation Internationale de Bobsleigh et Tobagganing (FIBT), was founded in 1923. This competition has been part of the official program since the 1st Olympic Winter Games in Chamonix Mont Blanc in 1924. Bobsled consists of three events in the Olympic program. Men and women compete in two-man/two-woman, and skeleton events. Men also compete in four-man. Olympic Skeleton events consists of two runs timed electronically to 0.01 seconds. The two runs are contested on the same day and the final standings determined by the aggregate time of the two runs. If athletes complete the competition in a tie, they receive the same award.

Poland-Poland is an ancient nation that was conceived near the middle of the 10th century. Its golden age occurred in the 16th century. During the following century, the strengthening of the gentry and internal disorders weakened the nation. In a series of agreements between 1772 and 1795, Russia, Prussia, and Austria partitioned Poland amongst themselves. Poland regained its independence in 1918 only to be overrun by Germany and the Soviet Union in World War II. It became a Soviet satellite state following the war, but its government was comparatively tolerant and progressive. Labor turmoil in 1980 led to the formation of the independent trade union "Solidarity" that over time became a political force and by 1990 had swept parliamentary elections and the presidency. An economic program during the early 1990s enabled the country to transform its economy into one of the most robust in Central Europe. Poland is located in Central Europe, east of Germany. The land area is 304,465 sq km and the 2005 population was 38,635,144.
