According to the Sochi 2014 website, Alex Gough of Calgary moved up from fifth to fourth spot after the third run of the women's singles luge competition at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi on Tuesday.

Still, even though Gough passed Natalia Khoreva of Russia into a closer position to the podium, she was unable to make up time on American Erin Hamlin, who currently holds the bronze medal position. Hamlin picked up 0.121 seconds on Gough.

Hamlin's three run time is 2:30.797, while Gough is at 2:31.152.

If Gough is able to move one position up the standings, she will make history by becoming the first Canadian in the history of the Olympic Winter Games to win a luge medal.

Germans are currently first and second. Natalie Geisenberger has a three run time of 2:29.579 and Tatjana Huefner has a three run time of 2:30.628.

Meanwhile, Calgary's Kim McRae is in fifth place and Calgary's Arianne Jones is in 13th place.
