Who else is involved?
After the first run, the medal ranks seem fixed, unless Steu/Koller make a big mistake in their final run. The Italian duo with Rieder/Kainzwalder is already 0.176 seconds behind the bronze medal. Bots/Plūme and Sics/Sics are also well behind the medal ranks.
The duo from Austria
The Austrians Thomas Steu and Lorenz Koller also want to fight for medals. After the first run, you are 0.171 seconds behind in third place. The second duo from Austria cannot take part in the medal decision. Yannick Müller suffered a fracture of his left forearm in a fall during training on Monday. This means that it is not possible to work together with Armin Frauscher.
Is there German gold again?
The chances are not bad that Team Germany will be able to celebrate again today. After the first of two runs, Tobias Wendl and Tobias Arlt are just ahead of the second German duo Toni Eggert and Sascha Benecken with the new track record. You are only 0.045 seconds short of gold. There is already a larger gap behind it.
The next medal competition in luge is coming up at the 2022 Winter Olympics. At 2:35 p.m. the decision will be made in the men’s doubles!
