According to the Sochi 2014 website, Kaillie Humphries of Calgary and Heather Moyse of Summerside, Prince Edward Island successfully defended their Olympic gold medal at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi on Wednesday.

Humphries and Moyse posted a time of 3:50.61 for the fastest four heat time. Americans won the silver and bronze medal respectively with Elana Meyers and Lauryn Williams posting a time of 3:50.71 and Aja Evans and Jamie Greubel posting a time of 3:51.61, a full second back of the Canadian gold medalists.

Wednesday was a significant day for Humphries and Moyse because they were 0.33 seconds faster than Meyers and Williams, who were significantly slower in heat three and four compared to heat one and two.

Meyers and Williams struggled on the track, made many errors and allowed team Canada to take the lead in the fourth and final heat.

Humphries and Moyse won the World Cup circuit this year and even though their start times might have been a little lower than they were expecting, Humphries delivered with an outstanding performance driving Canada I at the Sanki Slding Center, just like she did four years ago in Whistler.
