Huge congratulations from everyone at Alberta Bobsleigh to the Canadian gold medal winners Justin Kripps and Alexander Kopacz in the Olympic 2man race. All of our men's teams placed really well in a large and competitive field. Nick Poloniato and Jesse Lumsden placed 7th and Chris Spring with Lascelles Brown in 10th. Three sleds in the top ten at the Olympics is a major win.

In the women's race Kaillie Humphries captures her third medal at her third Olympics! Congratulations Kaillie Humphries and Phylicia George on your Bronze medal. Other strong Canadian women's teams were Alysia Rissling with brakeman Heather Moyse finishing 6th, and the Edmonton duo of Christine de Bruin and Melissa Lotholz in 7th. This was the first Olympics for Alysia, Christine and Melissa. Congratulations to all.
