Mass sliding on sledges, sleighs and snow saucers has been a traditional Russian pastime since the times of Peter I and sledges have always been an integral part of winter leisure for all children in Russia. They are a source of positive emotions and pleasant childhood memories and the name highlights the flavor of the Games and accurately reflects the functional purpose of the sports venue. The word "Sanki" is also harmonious in most foreign languages.
