The last Olympic champion
Mariama Jamanka won the gold medal in Pyeongchang 2018, when Lisa Buckwitz was in the bobsleigh. Can she still endanger Laura Nolte and win gold today? Brakewoman has already achieved historic things: The sprinter is only the fourth person from Germany to take part in both the Summer Games and the Winter Games. The third German two-man bob is in fifth place after the third run. However, it will be very difficult for pilot Kim Kalicki and Lisa Buckwitz to achieve the bronze medal after two failed runs.
Nolte on course for gold
German pilot Laura Nolte and brakewoman Deborah Levi have their sights set on the gold medal. A run separates them from the triumph. In the third run they were able to set a new track record. The advantage over the two-man bobsled by Mariama Jamanka and Alexandra Burghardt is already 0.78 seconds. However, anything can still happen on this treacherous track, which has 16 challenging corners. Elana Meyers Taylor (USA) with brakewoman Sylvia Hoffman is in bronze after the third run, 1,170 seconds behind the leading German. The order of the first four places has not changed from the day before.
Welcome to Yanqing National Sliding Center. The Olympic decision in the women’s two-man bobsleigh is imminent. It starts at 2:30 p.m. in reverse starting order. Who gets the medals?
