Ottawa (RWH) Justin Kripps and Alexander Kopacz, Olympic Champions in 2-man bobsleigh at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games, are nominated for the 41st Canadian Sport Awards. As AthletesCAN, the national athletes association, reports, the duo is one of four nominees in the „Partners of the Year“-Category.

At the Olympic race in PyeongChang (KOR), Justin Kripps/Alexander Kopacz (CAN) were tied for gold right down to the hundredth of a second with Francesco Friedrich/Thorsten Margis (GER). With their Olympic victory, Kripps/Kopacz claimed Canada’s second ever gold in the 2-man bobsleigh, which came 20 years after Pierre Lueders’ and David MacEachern’s win in Nagano (JPN) in 1998.
