article imageHumphries and Moyse win gold again

    Feb 19, 2014 in Sports

ROSA KHUTOR, Russia (Reuters) - Canada's Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse won a second successive Olympic women's bobsleigh gold after pipping the USA-1 sled of Elana Meyers by a tenth of a second on Wednesday.

Meyers and her brakeman Lauryn Williams - who had been seeking to become the first woman to win gold in the Summer and Winter Olympics - held a lead of 0.11 over the Canadians after three runs.

But after Humphries had ratcheted up the pressure with a quick final slide, Meyers could not find the smooth lines she wanted and a succession of bumps slowed her to finish 0.10 down.

Americans Jamie Greubel and Aja Evans won bronze.
