Park City (RWH) 2-woman Bobsleigh European Champion Kim Kalicki (GER) celebrated her second victory in the second race of the season at the BMW IBSF World Cup in Park City (USA).

With push athlete Leonie Fiebig, the 2020 and 2021 World Championships silver medallist broke one of the oldest track records in bobsleigh: Shauna Rohbock/Valerie Fleming (USA), the 2006 Olympic silver medallists, had set the old record in December 2006. 16 years later, Kalicki/Fiebig improved the track record in Utah Olympic Park by more than a tenth of a second to 48.60 seconds.

Second place in Park City went to Olympic Champion Laura Nolte with push athlete Lena Neunecker (GER, 0.23 seconds back). World Champion Kaillie Humphries (USA, 0.32 seconds back) celebrated a podium finish for the World Cup hosts from the USA with Jasmine Jones in third place.

In the overall standings of the BMW IBSF World Cup 2022/2023 Kim Kalicki (GER, 450 points) is leading after two of the eight season races ahead of Laura Nolte (GER, 402) and Kaillie Humphries (USA, 400).
