Canada's Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse will have to come from behind if they want to defend their gold medal in women's bobsled at the Olympic Winter Games.

The Canada-1 sled was the favourite to win gold this week at the Sanki Sliding Center, but sits second to USA-1, piloted by Elana Meyers, after the first two runs on Tuesday.

The American sled has an 0.23 second lead, but Humphries isn't concerned.

"We don't really look at times, so I don't even know how big the gap is," Humphries said. "And we don't want to know. "Heather and I go in and focus on ourselves. I have no idea how anyone else did, how their runs were. We stick to us. We just try to have fun. Knowing where other people are just complicates that."

Meyers is happy to have the lead, but knows Humphries will bring plenty of fight to the competition on Wednesday.
