      Minnesota man wins "Best Dad' in backyard Olympics

      While some of the world's best athletes are competing in Sochi, a dad in Minnesota has already won.

      The man created his own Olympic event: Smith Ice Luge. He built a luge track in his backyard and the neighborhood kids bring their sleds to the top and race to the bottom.

      The course starts like the Olympics luge: with a straight shot. From there you turn once, then a sharp u-turn before coming out at the bottom. While it may be scary at first, kids say the fun is worth it.
