WHISTLER, B.C. - Canada wants to bring the world's fastest sliding athletes back to the track that hosted the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Bobsleigh Canada Skeleton announced today it's bidding to host the 2019 world championship.

In addition to hosting the 2010 Games, the venue has also staged multiple World Cup events as well as the 2013 luge world championships.

The International Bobsleigh and Skeleton Federation is expected to announce the winning bid in June.

The Whistler track is the same one where 21-year-old Georgian luger Nodar Kumaritashvili died just hours before the start of the 2010 Olympics, prompting criticism the course was too fast.
