PARK CITY, Utah (AP) -- The United States swept the podium in a women's bobsled World Cup race on Saturday, with the team of Elana Meyers and Aja Evans winning a gold medal for the second straight day

Jamie Greubel and Lolo Jones tied for second place with Jazmine Fenlator and Lauryn Williams. Jones and Williams are both Olympic track veterans, and Williams was making her World Cup debut.

It was the first time since Feb. 17, 2001, also in Park City, that American sleds took the top three spots in a women's bobsled race. Meyers and Evans finished two runs in 1 minute, 38.61 seconds. Greubel and Fenlator both drove to times of 1:39.24 to share the silver, a mere 0.01 seconds ahead of German star Sandra Kirasis.
