Rush and Lumsden Slide to Gold

Rush and Lumsden Slide to Gold
Canadian Olympic Team Mark

Olympic bronze medallist Lyndon Rush, of Humboldt, SK, and Olympian Jesse Lumsden, of Burlington, ON, captured gold today in the two-man World Cup Bobsleigh event in Konigssee, Germany after smashing the field by nearly half a second with a two-run time of 1:40.22.

“This is a short track so you expect the times to be close, but we had things set up really well this week,” said the 32-year-old Rush. “Jesse jarred his back loading in the first push so we said to each other the second run was going to be a ‘hard hat run.’ He dug deep and gave me everything he had to get it done today.”

The win marked the third gold medal for the duo together and the sixth overall including a silver medal at least year’s World Championships in Salt Lake City, USA.

The victory comes on the heels of their female Canadian counterparts, Kaillie Humphries and Chelsea Valois, winning gold on Friday on the same track in Germany.
