US wins silver in women's bobsled; Canada rallies for gold

KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia – Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse of Canada have rallied to win their second straight Olympic women’s bobsledding gold medal.

Humphries and Moyse edged Elana Meyers and Lauryn Williams of the United States by 0.10 seconds after four runs that ended Wednesday night. The Canadians entered Wednesday trailing by about a quarter-second.

Meyers and Williams had the lead after two runs, but skids cost them time in Runs 3 and 4 – and ultimately cost the Americans gold.

Williams becomes the fifth Olympian to medal in different events at the Summer and Winter Games. She has gold and silver medals from three Olympic appearances as a sprinter.

The Americans also took bronze, with Jamie Greubel and Aja Evans. It’s the first time two U.S. sleds have medaled in women’s bobsledding.
