For Humphries it was her fourth world title, which means she is now the best bobsleigh ever at the Olympics and world championships. It is also remarkable that she divides her world titles between her nationalities. She won the first two as a Canadian, while the last two years she has been honored as an American.
Still, that doesn’t mean she’s gotten used to winning because of all these titles. “It’s a huge relief,” Humphries said afterward. “It was a huge team effort. Crossing the finish line, seeing that “1” behind your name and knowing that everything went as planned is great. You are overwhelmed by a huge wave of joy.
While Humphries’ story is one of the most successful, Jones’s is one of the most remarkable. Jones won gold at the 2008 and 2010 World Athletics Championships in the 60-meter hurdles event. These are two branches of sport that she has been able to combine for some time.
For example, Jones won gold at the Bobsleigh World Championship with mixed teams eight years ago. Now she also has her second bobsleigh world title, a unique brace. Although this gold plate will feel better, because she only had to play one of four sets in 2013. “I didn’t expect to get emotional,” she replied afterwards. “I don’t know if it was snow when we came down or if I was crying. But no, I think I was crying.
