Abstract

    In this study, the “speed” of Paul Virilio, the perception of Jonathan Clary, the “spectacle” of Guy Debord are used as analytical concepts, and to consider the transformation in the space of the four-men bobsleigh events from the 1st Winter Olympics at Chamonix-Mont-Blanc in 1924 to the 23rd Winter Olympics at Pyeongchang in 2018. As a result, it became clear that the space of bobsleigh events transforms the perception by interacting with high speed and spectacle. Furthermore, high speed and spectacle have progressed, supporting the enthusiasm for these events.
