KOENIGSSEE, Germany (AP) — World junior champion Johannes Lochner won again Sunday, adding his third victory in four-man bobsled to Saturday’s second World Cup win in the two-man event.
The 26-year-old German, with his crew of Matthias Kagerhuber, Joshua Bluhm and Christian Rasp, set a new track record with the first run. Lochner was fastest again in the second for a combined time of 1 minute, 37.17 seconds, beating compatriot Nico Walther’s team by 0.25.
