German women win luge World Cup race

Tatjana Huefner led a German sweep of the top four places in a women’s luge World Cup race Sunday.

The best non-German was world champion Erin Hamlin of the United States in fifth place. It was the second sweep of the top four places for the German women in three races this season. Last weekend in Austria, they took the top three.

The German women have been undefeated in 93 World Cup races since November 1997. Hamlin interrupted their dominance when she took the world title in February.

Huefner had the fastest runs in both heats Sunday to grab her 18th World Cup win. Natalie Geisenberger, Anke Wischnewski and Corinna Martini followed.
