KOENIGSSEE, Germany — Four-time world champion Maximilian Arndt led his German teammates to victory in a four-man bobsled race Sunday, one week after receiving hospital treatment following a crash.
Arndt, Kevin Korona, Alexander Roediger and Ben Heber produced the fastest second run to win in a combined time of 1 minute 37.72 seconds, edging compatriot Nico Walther's team by two hundredths of a second.
Junior world champion Walther and teammates Andreas Bredau, Marko Huebenbecker and Christian Poser were fastest in the first run but four hundredths of a second slower than Arndt's team in the second.
Latvia's Oskars Melbardis, Daumants Dreiskens, Arvis Vilkaste and Janis Strenga were third, 0.14 seconds back, followed by the German team led by Francesco Friedrich and the Latvian team led by Oskars Kibermanis.
