BMW IBSF World Cup, two-man bobsleigh: Yunjong Won and Rico Peter take joint first, Alexander Kasjanov finishes in third in Whistler
Host team Chris Spring of Canada celebrated his best two-man bobsleigh result in two years in front of a home crowd. The seventh-place finisher at the Olympics came in fifth in Whistler, achieving the same time as defending World Cup Champion Oskars Melbardis of Latvia.
Following the fifth of eight races in the BMW IBSF World Cup 2015/2016, Yunjong Won (1001 points) replaced Francesco Friedrich (GER) in the top spot in the overall rankings. The World Champion was in third place halfway through proceedings in Whistler; however, an injury prevented him from competing in the final run which meant that he fell to sixth place in the overall rankings. Second place in the rankings is held by Nico Walther (GER, 898), who finished twelfth in Whistler, and Rico Peter (SUI, 889) is in third.
