Kaillie Humphries poses at a Team USA Beijing 2022 Olympic shoot on Sept. 12, 2021 in Irvine, Calif.
Kaillie Humphries was constantly on the move, going from Germany to Los Angeles, back to Germany and then finally to the top of the medal podium.
After all her traveling over the past few days, she was still able to make winning look easy.
Humphries capped a whirlwind week on Sunday when she teamed with Kaysha Love to win the two-woman bobsled race in 1 minute, 54.10 seconds at the women’s monobob world series competition in Altenberg, Germany.
It was Love’s first career world cup victory and the second win in as many days for Humphries, a two-time Olympic gold medalist for Canada.

Humphries earned a sweep in Altenberg with Sunday’s strong performance. A day earlier, she won the women’s monobob race with a two-run total of 2:00.57.
“I was able to rely on my experience over these last two days,” Humphries said. “I’ve raced here many years, and I’ve worked extremely hard to be able to be at this level. What you saw was years and years of trial and error coming together and an absolutely amazing team.”
Humphries and Love stood in second place after posting a time of 56.99 seconds on their first run. They followed it up with the fastest time of the second run — 57.11 seconds — to earn the victory over Germany’s Laura Nolte and Deborah Levi by .04 seconds (1:54.14).
Americans Elana Meyers Taylor and Sylvia Hoffman put together two strong runs to finish fifth at 1:54.77.
