BMW IBSF World Cup: Olympic Champion Kaillie Humphries achieves her fourth win of the season
Whistler (RWH) Olympic Champion Kaillie Humphries of Canada was the winner of the woman‘s bobsleigh at the BMW IBSF World Cup in Whistler (CAN). With her brakewoman Melissa Lotholz, the two-time World Champion (2012 and 2013) pushed Olympic bronze medallist Jamie Greubel Poser and her brakewoman Cherrelle Garrett (USA, 0.15 seconds behind) into second place. Christina Hengster/Sanne Dekker (AUT, 0.27 seconds behind) finished in third, celebrating their third consecutive podium finish.
During the first run at Whistler, Jamie Greubel Poser became the first athlete in six years to break the record set by Kaillie Humphries/Heather Moyse for their Olympic win in 2010. However, Kaillie Humphries ultimately managed to regain her record (now at 52.66 seconds).
After the sixth of eight races, the overall standings for the BMW IBSF World Cup 2015/2016 are still lead by the overall winner of the 2014 World Cup Kaillie Humphries (CAN, 1310 points) ahead of Jamie Greubel Poser (USA, 1260) and Christina Hengster (AUT, 1186).
