Default Kaillie Humphries Wins Bobsleigh World Cup Title

Quote:
Kaillie Humphries claimed her fourth bobsleigh women's title on Saturday after winning silver in the final World Cup race of the season.
Humphries and teammate Phylicia George finished second with a time of one minute 41.64 seconds, only 0.29 behind German's Stephanie Schneider and Annika Drazek.
Quote:
With five podium finishes this season, Humphries — a two-time Olympic champion — finished atop the World Cup standings with 1631 points for the world title. Meyers Taylor was second in 1591. Rissling was sixth with 1288.

Who is made Humphries' brakeman next month?
I'm gunning for Mel Lotholz: super strong and consistent but I think Bobsleigh Canada is really impressed with George's speed.

I think it'll go to Phylicia George, too. That's judging by the past month or so.

Melissa Lotholz is an Alberta girl and lives in Calgary. It would be nice if she had the chance.

The bobsled teams have gained a lot of momentum ahead of the Games. Well done to the women's and men's squads.

I got to know Alysia Rissling a bit (sister of former Hitmen player Jaynen Rissling) and she's good stuff. She's likely in tough for a medal this go-round but she's got an interesting story of how she lured the legend Heather Moyse out of retirement for one last Olympics. They did well on the World Cup circuit this year so hoping for an improbably double medal for Canada on the Women's side.
