The men’s two-man bobsleigh raked in its second gold medal of the World Cup season in Konigssee, Germany.

Lyndon Rush, of Humboldt, Sask., and Jesse Lumsden, of Burlington, Ont., put on their best showing of the season, winning by one-half of a second with a two-run time of 1:40.22 down a 14-corner track.

“This is a short track so you expect the times to be close, but we had things set up really well this week,” Rush said. “Jesse jarred his back loading in the first push so we said to each other the second run was going to be a ‘hard hat run.’ He dug deep and gave me everything he had to get it done today.”

Rush and Lumsden were joined on the podium by Latvia’s Oskars Melbardis and Daumants Dreiskens in second (1:40.60), and Germany’s Francesco Friedrich and Gino Gerhardi in third (1:40.72).

With the second victory, and fourth podium finish of the season, Team Rush sits atop the overall World Cup standings.
