Canada's Justin Kripps and Alex Kopacz are two runs away from an Olympic medal in Pyeongchang, South Korea. 

The Canadian pair sits in second after posting a combined two-run time of one minute, 38.49 seconds on Sunday. They trail the German team of Nico Walther and Christian Poser, who lead by only one-tenth of a second. 

"I think we have a great shot," said Kripps, who was born in Hawaii, has lived in about a half-dozen countries, identifies as Canadian and also holds an Australian passport.

Canada's two other bobsleigh duos — Nick Poloniato and Jesse Lumsden, as well as Christopher Spring and Lascelles Brown — are tied for 10th at 1:38.96. 

The final runs get underway Monday beginning at 6:15 a.m. ET.
