BEIJING (AP) — Double gold in Pyeongchang, double gold in Beijing.
Francesco Friedrich won everything the Olympics had to offer once again.
The world’s best bobsledder finished off a dominating Olympics by the world’s sliding superpower, winning the four-man race at the Beijing Games on Sunday.
BEIJING (AP) — Francesco Friedrich’s pursuit of the first Olympic bobsled double-double is off to the right kind of start.
That said, Johannes Lochner is clearly not going to let his German teammate win easily.
BEIJING (AP) — Olympic bobsled champion Francesco Friedrich may skip Friday’s final day of training for this weekend’s four-man event, for two reasons.
BEIJING (AP) — Eins, zwei, drei. In German, that means one, two, three.
And for the German bobsled team, it also means history.
Germany — unquestionably the world’s sliding superpower — became the first nation to sweep the medals in an Olympic bobsled race on Tuesday, grabbing gold, silver and bronze in the two-man event at the Beijing Games.
BEIJING (AP) — There’s never been an instance of one nation sweeping the medals in an Olympic bobsled event.
Germany has a chance to change that.
The world’s sliding superpower grabbed three of the top four spots at the midpoint of the two-man competition at the Beijing Olympics on Monday, with reigning world and Olympic champion Francesco Friedrich leading the way.
BEIJING (AP) — There are no rear-view mirrors on a bobsled, which is fitting when considering Francesco Friedrich’s approach to the sport.
He doesn’t look back. Only forward.
That’s why the greatest men’s bobsledder in the world right now — and probably ever — has no desire to talk about his legacy or what he’s already accomplished to this point.
