Canada’s bobsled duo of Kaillie Humphries and Chelsea Valois extended their podium streak to double digits on Friday after winning for the ninth time in 10 international events.

The pair won in Konigssee, Germany, with a two-run time of 1:43.07 on a 14-corner track.

“I felt great warming up,” Humphries said following her 10th World Cup win. “We had two great starts today and I had two decent runs with no major mistakes so everything worked out really well today and it is sweet to win again.”

Germany’s Cathleen Martini and Janine Tischler were second at 1:43.49, while Sandra Kiriasis and Berit Wiacker grabbed bronze with a time of 1:43.61.
