Team USA won a silver medal in the women’s bobsled, here are all the results from the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang.
The United States won another medal at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, this time it was the women’s team bringing home silver. The American team of Elana Meyers Taylor and Lauren Gibbs won silver, while the team of Aja Evans and Jamie Greubel Poser finished in fifth.
Coming into the final two runs, the difference in time between the top five teams was incredibly narrow, setting up a wild finale. The German duo of Mariama Jamanka and Lisa Marie Buckwitz sat in first after the first two runs and held on to win the medal.
Taylor and Gibbs entered in second but couldn’t gain ground on Germany but held onto second. Canada’s pair of Phylicia George and Kaillie Humphries moved from fifth into third to finish on the podium, leapfrogging the German team of Stephanie Schneider and Annika Drazek and the American dup of Aja Evans and Jamie Greubel Poser.
For Meyers Taylor, this is her third Olympic medal, winning bronze at the 2010 Vancouver games and silver at the 2014 Sochi games.
Germany’s run of dominance on sliding sports continues with a gold medal in women’s bobsled. They also won six out of 12 luge medals, a silver medal in women’s skeleton and now a gold medal in two-man bobsled. They’ve won five gold medals in sliding events, which ties the record for gold medals at a single games.
