Russia’s Zubkov continues hot streak at bobsled World Cup

Russia’s Zubkov continues hot streak at bobsled World Cup
Russia's Aleksandr Zubkov raced to his third straight World Cup four-man bobsled victory on Saturday.

Zubkov's team clocked a two-run time of 1 minute and 43.29 seconds, beating the Russia 2 sled piloted by Aleksandr Kasjanov by 0.24 seconds.

Canada's Chris Spring came in third and American Steven Holcomb in fourth a day after the pair won the two-man event.

As reigning bobsled World Cup holder, the 38-year-old Zubkov has now won the gold in the four-man at all three consecutive World Cup stops.

The team's success has been credited to new coach Canadian Pierre Lueders, the 1998 Olympic two-man champion who retired after the 2010 Games.
