Germany was able to boost their gold medal count in the 2014 Winter Olympics up to six on Wednesday, thanks to a first-place finish by double luge competitors Tobias Arlt and Tobias Wendl.

The German team has been performing well recently, with back-to-back World Championships and two gold medals in the World Cup. The doubles luge gold in the Sochi Games just adds to their resume as the top luge doubles team in the world.

Arlt and Wendl were half a second faster than second-place finishers Andreas and Wolfgang Linger of Austria, who claimed the gold medal. Bronze went to Andris and Juris Šics of Latvia for their third-place finish.
