Russians Zubkov, Trunenkov golden in men's bobsled
Russia's Alexsandr Zubkov and Dmitry Trunenkov overcame poor visibility to win the men's two-man bobsled World Cup event at Olympic Park on Friday night.
The Russian team finished in one minute 37.33 seconds — 0.14 ahead of the Italian team of Simone Bertazzo and Sergio Riva. Germans Andreas Bredau and Manuel Machata took third (1:37.87) after Germany 2 was disqualified for having a brakeman who wasn't registered in the event.
John Napier and Laszio Vandracsek were the top U.S. team, taking sixth in 1:37.89.
Americans Steve Holcomb and Curtis Tomasevicz were seventh (1:37.91). They were third after the first run but got a poor push to drop off the podium.
The women's bobsled race was postponed after the timing system failed because of blowing snow.
