Bobsleigh: Kripps and Coakwell slide to a World Cup bronze in Latvia

Team Canada’s Justin Kripps and Ben Coakwell teamed up together to slide straight to the podium at the IBSF World Cup in Sigulda, Latvia on Saturday.

The Canadian duo captured a bronze medal in the two-man bobsleigh after putting up a two-run time of 1:39.53. Latvian pairing Oskars Kibermanis and Matiss Miknis won the race in front of a home crowd (1:39.27), while German pairing Francesco Friedrich and Martin Grothkopp finished in second (1:39.20)

This marks Kripps’ 16th medal in the two-man bobsleigh competition and a second for Coakwell.
