According to the Canadian Press on Saturday, Kaillie Humphries of Calgary and Heather Moyse of Summerside, Prince Edward Island won a women's World Cup bobsled competition on Saturday.

However it is the way Humphries and Moyse won in St. Moritz, Switzerland that is making headlines.

The Canadians only had the tenth fastest time after the first run, but stormed back in the second run to beat Cathleen Martini and Christin Senkel of Germany by 0.22 seconds.

The mere fact that a team moves nine spots in the rankings from one run to the next is simply astounding, but that is what Humphries and Moyse were able to accomplish Saturday. Their win was also significant because it came with only one month before the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.

Fabienne Maeyer and Tanja Mayer of Switzerland pleased the home Swiss crowd with a third place finish of 2:17.15.

With the victory, Humphries and Moyse moved into first place in the World Cup standings, and are 29 points ahead of Elana Meyers and Aja Evans.

Humphries and Moyse have two more World Cups before the 2014 Olympic Winter Games-- in Igls, Austria next weekend and in Konigssee, Germany two weeks from now.
