second place with Jazmine Fenlator and Lauryn

#1
PARK CITY, Utah -- The United States swept the podium in a womens bobsled World Cup on Saturday, with the team of Elana Meyers and 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 veterans, and Williams was making her World Cup debut. It was the first time since February 2001 that American sleds took the top three spots in a womens 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. "It feels great to be on the podium," said Jones, who won her second World Cup medal as a push athlete. "With bobsled you never know when you are going to be on the podium and how long it will be before you are back on again. It makes you cherish the moments when you are doing well. " A schedule quirk calls for certain sliding disciplines to race twice at various World Cup stops this winter, and in Park City, womens bobsled was due for the double-up. So after winning gold Friday night, Meyers and Evans were back at it early Saturday. Meyers also assumed the series driving lead from Canadas Kaillie Humphries, who was seventh. The World Cup standings determine the starting order for the Sochi Olympics next year, and the earlier start position typically means a racer would be seeing better ice conditions. In the four-man race, Steven Holcomb continued his unbeaten season, teaming with Curt Tomasevicz, Steve Langton and Chris Fogt to pull away in the second run for a victory in 1:34.76. There was a three-way tie after the first four-man run between the Americans, a Russian sled and a German sled, but Holcomb was perfect the second time down the track to edge Germanys Maximilian Arndt by 0.35 seconds. Russias Alexander Kasjanov was third, 0.36 seconds back of Holcomb. "It was a great race and thats what were all here for," Holcomb said. "It was a good day." Aleksander Barkov Jersey .

In her first slalom race since taking Olympic gold, the 18-year-old American led from start to finish just as she did at Sochi two weeks ago. Shiffrin had a combined two-run time of 1 minute, 50.66 seconds, 0.60 ahead of Maria Pietilae-Holmner of Sweden. Another Swede, Anna Swenn-Larsson, got her first career podium finish in third, 1.50 back. Shiffrin earned 100 World Cup points for her fourth victory of the season and moved 130 clear of Frida Hansdotter of Sweden, who placed fourth. Five days before her 19th birthday, Shiffrin, who is from Vail, Colorado, now has Olympic and world championship gold medals and two World Cup titles in her specialist event. In a tight race for the oveerall World Cup title, Maria Hoefl-Riesch of Germany retook the standings lead from Anna Fenninger of Austria, who does not race slalom.dddddddddddd Hoefl-Riesch placed seventh, trailing Shiffrin by 3.26, to earn 36 race points. She moved 29 ahead of Fenninger as she seeks to repeat her 2011 overall title, which she won by just three points from American Lindsey Vonn. The final four races are scheduled next week at Lenzerheide, Switzerland. Shiffrin made the slalom finale next Saturday meaningless, with Hansdotter dropping from second-fastest in the first run. Second-run racers coped with steadily falling snow and poor visibility after morning sunshine lit the first-leg course. Shiffrin had the advantage of the second-leg gate-setting being designed by her personal coach on the U.S. team, Roland Pfeifer.
