From Königssee, GER

The United States team of Hamlin, West, and Mortensen & Terdiman finished with a silver medal on three strong runs. Erin Hamlin finished her run just over .45 off the pace, and Tucker West closed the gap to two tenths. The doubles team of Mortensen & Terdiman finished the silver medal run just .881 off the pace set by the Germans.
Austria finished third, with the team of Steu & Koller out-pacing the Canadian doubles team of Walker & Snith for the medal. Canada finished fourth, with Latvia and Italy rounding out the top six.
