From Königssee, GER
Germany all but dominated Sunday’s competitions in Königssee, first winning two of three medals in the two-man bobsled race, then turning around and taking gold and silver in the team competition.
The Germany 1 team of Axel Jungk, Miriama Jamanka, Jacqueline Lölling, and Johannes Lochner pulled away on the strength of Lölling’s track record run to pull away from their Germany 2 teammates of Christopher Grotheer, Stephanie Schneider, Tina Hermann and Nico Walther.
For the first time in the Team Competition, the International squad won a medal, with with a very German-centric feel to it. The International 3 team comprised of Germans Alexander Gassner, Anna Fernstädt, Richard Oelsner and women’s bobsledder Maria Constantin finished with a bronze medal on the strength of a track record run by Gassner.
Elana Meyers Taylor led the way for USA 1 as they finished sixth overall, with Meyers Taylor setting the fastest time of the day for the women’s bobsled portion of the program. USA 2 finished 10th, while Canada 2 and Canada 1 finished just ahead in eighth and ninth respectively.
