Shiva Keshavan has qualified for the 47th FIL Luge World Championship, Igls, Tirol, Austria with the personal best timing of 50.546 secs ... Not a bad timing considering the World record is 50.098 secs.

Isn't this Shiva's 6th Olympics in a row? Did he miss any? I think his first was in 1998..

Yes Jay, if he qualifies then 2018 Winter Olympics will be his sixth in a row ... He participated in 1998, 2002, 2006, 2010 and 2014 Winter Olympics.
