Two-time Olympic gold medalist Callie Humphries of Curlsbad won her second Monobob World Championship race in eight days at Königssee on Saturday.
Humphries had the fastest time in each run – 53.36 seconds in the first and 53.39 seconds in the second – a combined time of one minute, 46.75 seconds.
Elana Meyers Taylor of the US team from Douglasville, Georgia finished second with a combined time of 1: 47.37. Germany’s Stephanie Schneider was third with a time of 1: 47.50.
“I don’t focus on time, I can do what I do better,” Humphries said. “If I make a mistake, the door opens to other contestants. I work on what I can control and make sure my start and run are as good. Although I know that I am in charge, I want to focus on what I can do better. “
Humphries won Olympic gold medals for his native Canada in 2010 and 2014, two bobsleighs and bronze in 2018.
In 2019 she moved to a United States delegation due to abuse and harassment when she said she faced the Canadian Bobsleigh Federation.
Humphries was admitted to the US in 2019 after marrying former US bobsleigh driver Travis Armbruster.
Humphries won the first women’s monobob competition, which she competed in St. Louis last Saturday. Moritz, Switzerland. He had never driven a monobob sled before.
The women’s monobob was a separate series and entered the World Cup last week, allowing contestants such as Humphries to compete.
The women’s monobob event will be unveiled at the 2022 Beijing Winter Games.
“Nothing is guaranteed in life, in sports, in anything,” Humphries said. “Monobob added a new challenge. There are several steps to be taken before the Olympic Games in 2022. Whenever I go to the sled, I try to understand more. I love the challenge and it makes me hungry for more. I will keep getting better. “
