ALTENBERG, Germany -- Canadas Alex Gough won a pair of silver medals while Kimberley McRae added a bronze at a World Cup womens luge event Sunday. The Calgary native finished second, 0.674 seconds behind Germanys Natalie Geisenberger (one minute 46.332 seconds), who captured the World Cup championship for the second straight year. "I definitely didnt expect that ...," said Gough. "I think seeing your teammates do well does a lot for everyone to know it is not only the Germans that can get on the podium. To have two athletes from another country on the womens podium is very rare." McRae, also of Calgary, trailed Gough by 0.024 seconds for her first-career podium. "Standing in the finish area beside Alex my heart was just hammering," said McRae. "I remember watching the Russian and saying to Alex, I could move into third. I just started jumping for joy. "It was amazing. To share it with Alex is pretty cool. Watching her get on the podium over the last few years has really helped me. It tells me I can do it and it is not always the same athletes that win." It was Geisenbergers seventh win in eight races on the circuit this season. Her teammates Tatjana Huefner and Dajana Eitberger were fourth and fifth. This is the seventh consecutive year that Geisenberger finished ranked in the top three on tour and the 16th straight year in which a German woman won the season-long title. Geisenberger is also the sixth woman to win back-to-back World Cup titles and the ninth woman with multiple championships overall. "They all tell me that Im the top favourite to win the gold medal at the games," Geisenberger said. "However, my aim is to claim a medal. The pressure is high enough and I dont need to put myself under even more pressure." In the team relay, Russia finished first, followed by Canada in second -- with Gough getting her second silver of the day by being part of the effort there -- and Germany took third. Germans swept all three disciplines in the World Cup this season, with Felix Loch taking the mens crown and the team of Tobias Wendl and Tobias Arlt winning the doubles points championship. Germany also finished with the most ranking points in team relays. Erik Karlsson Jersey
