Kaillie Humphries (USA) won the inaugural women’s monobob gold medal with a dominant performance, winning by 1.54 seconds from her fellow-American Elana Meyers Taylor (USA). For both Humphries and Meyers Taylor this was their fourth Olympic bobsleigh medal, with Humphries winning her third gold medal, all records for women’s bobsledders.

Humphries competed for Canada from 2010-18, and she therefore became the first female Winter Olympian to win gold medals for two non-politically related nations at the Summer or Winter Games. Only Viktor An (South Korea/Russia) has done this previously at the Winter Olympics.

The United States 1-2 finish was the 19th time they have won gold-silver in a Winter Olympic event, and the eighth time it has been achieved by USA women. The bronze medal was won by Canada’s Christine de Bruin, who competed at PyeongChang 2018 in the two-women bobsleigh, finishing seventh.

Humphries became the oldest gold medallist in women’s bobsledding at 36 years, 163 days. The previous oldest was Heather Moyse (Can), at 35 years 210 days in 2014.
