Holcomb wins another World Cup 2-man bobsled race as U.S. sweeps

Steven Holcomb won another World Cup 2-man bobsled race on Saturday, leading a U.S. sweep of the medals and adding to the dominating start of the Olympic season by American sliders.

It’s the first time U.S. sleds have gone 1-2-3 in a 2-man World Cup race.

Holcomb and Chris Fogt finished two runs in 1 minute, 50.19 seconds. Nick Cunningham and Johnny Quinn were second in 1:50.74, and Cory Butner and Chuck Berkeley were third in 1:50.85.

Holcomb has won all six World Cup men’s bobsled races this season, four of them coming in 2-man. He extended his lead in the World Cup 2-man standings to 136 points over Cunningham.

Switzerland’s Beat Hefti fell into third in the season standings.
