LAKE PLACID, N.Y. — Dajana Eitberger was fastest in both heats to lead a German sweep of the medals in a women’s World Cup luge race at Mount Van Hoevenberg on Sunday.
It was the first German sweep of the medals in a full women’s race at Lake Placid since 2007. Natalie Geisenberger was second and Julia Taubitz was third, with that trio holding off three USA Luge sliders for the medal spots.
Emily Sweeney was fourth for the U.S., Summer Britcher was fifth and Brittney Arndt was sixth. Sweeney missed a medal by only 0.014 seconds.
Sprint races in men’s, women’s and doubles were scheduled for later Sunday.
