MID-MICHIGAN (WJRT) -

(02/11/14) - The technology that helped propel the Luge team to their first Olympic medal was developed right here in Mid-Michigan.

A team of scientists and engineers at Dow Chemical developed new runners that are lighter and easier to maneuver.

They developed new materials that replaced old handmade wooden parts used on the old sleds.

A few members of the Dow team even traveled to Russia.

The project has been going on since 2007.
