ALTENBERG, Germany (AP) — Britain’s Brad Hall got the second World Cup four-man bobsled win of his career Sunday, holding off three German sleds for the victory.

And Kaillie Humphries of the U.S. helped thwart what would have been a German sweep in the women’s bobsled race, tying for bronze.

Hall drove to the win in 1 minute, 48.22 seconds. Christoph Hafer of Germany was second in 1:48.31, Johannes Lochner third in 1:48.48 and Olympic champion Francesco Friedrich was fourth in 1:48.74.

In the women’s race, Lisa Buckwitz and Kira Lipperheide won in 1:53.17, just ahead of fellow Germans Kim Kalicki and Leonie Fiebig (1:53.29). Humphries and Jasmine Jones finished in 1:53.55, tying for third with Germans Laura Nolte and Lena Neunecker.
