German Bobsleh women continue to carry the burden of victory on many shoulders, almost three weeks before the domestic World Cup, unbeaten. On the track in St. Moritz, Stephanie Schneider (Oberiventhal) won her second win of the season with Pussie Leonie Feibig ahead of Elna Meyers Taylor (USA). Olympic champion Maria Jamanca (Oborhof) came fourth, European champion Laura Nolte (Winterberg), winning three times in six seasons of the season, came in seventh. Because Kim Kalki is also in solid form, head coach René Spies continues to switch teams. Nolte is also confident in this internal competition with good results in the new discipline Monobob, which will also have the Olympic Olympics in just one year. At St. Moritz, Knoll finished second in his second race at the single-seater Bobsley, with Kyle Humphries the winner. The two-time Olympic champion from Canada, who has started for the USA since last season, led by 0.20 seconds after two runs. Third place went to Stephanie Schneider from Oberweissenthal to Swiss Martina Fontaniv, who set the best time of the season in 1: 10.90 minutes at the natural ice rink in Engen. Two-member Bobsleigh Olympic champion Maria Jamanka came from the eleventh from BRC Thuringia.
