PARK CITY, Utah — The United States swept the podium in a women's bobsled World Cup race on Saturday, with the team of Elana Meyers and Chicago's Aja Evans winning a gold medal for the second straight day.
Jamie Greubel and Lolo Jones tied for second place with Jazmine Fenlator and Lauryn Williams. Jones and Williams are both Olympic track veterans, and Williams was making her World Cup debut.
It was the first time American sleds took the top three spots in a women's bobsled race. Meyers and Evans finished two runs in 1 minute, 38.61 seconds. Greubel and Fenlator both drove to times of 1:39.24 to share the silver, a mere 0.01 seconds ahead of German star Sandra Kirasis.
Meyers also assumed the series driving lead from Canada's Kaillie Humphries, who was seventh.
