According to the Canadian Press, Kaillie Humphries of Calgary and Chelsea Valois of Zenon Park, Saskatchewan have won the 2013 Women's World Cup bobsled title after finishing in third place at a competition in Sochi, Russia on Friday.
With the third place finish, Humphries and Valois had 1985 points, 139 more World Cup points than Sandra Kiriasis and Franziska Bertels of Germany.
However Kiriasis and Bertels can take confidence in the fact that they won Friday on the course that will host the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi. The Germans posted a time of 1:57.19, thirteen one hundredths of a second faster than the American pair of Elena Meyers and Aja Evans, who won the silver medal.
It was a great season for Humphries and Valois. During their first World Cup season together, they won six World Cup gold medals, one World Cup silver medal, two World Cup bronze medals and a World Championship.
