Jane Channell comes in second, Janine Flock third
Park City (RWH) Skeleton slider Tina Hermann of Germany has won the BMW IBSF World Cup in Park City (USA). In the fifth of the season’s eight races, Hermann, who came overall third last year, was 0.41 seconds faster than her closest rival after the two runs, Canada’s Jane Channell, whose second place in Park City was the best World Cup result of her career to date. The defending World Cup titleholder, Janine Flock of Austria, came in third 0.50 seconds back, her best result of the World Cup season so far, just four weeks before the 2016 BMW IBSF World Championships, which will be held on her home track in Innsbruck.
Kendall Wesenberg of the USA was fifth in Utah Olympic Park behind teammate Anne O’Shea, also her best result in a World Cup.
At 1077 points, Tina Hermann continues to head the BMW IBSF World Cup 2015/2016 overall standings after the fifth race. Youth Olympic Champion and World Championship runner-up Jacqueline Lölling of Germany is overall second with 948 points after placing seventh in Park City, and Jane Channell is third with 930 points.
