Andi Langenhan leads luge sweep
CALGARY, Alberta -- Andi Langenhan won the battle of the German stars Saturday for his third World Cup luge victory and first at Canada Olympic Park.
Langenhan had a two-run time of 1 minute 29.406 seconds to edge 2010 Olympic champion Felix Loch by 0.094 seconds.
"That's not my favorite track. I've had big problems here in past races," Langenhan said. "I put together two good runs and beat Olympic champion Felix Loch. I couldn't be happier.
"It's pretty hard to beat Felix and especially on this track because he's fast at the start. He made some mistakes here today and I got him."
Germany's David Moller was third in 1:29.657. Italy's Armin Zoggeler, the winner in the last three World Cup races in Calgary, was fourth.
Germany's Tobias Wendl and Tobias Arlt won the doubles race in 1:27.661, edging two-time defending Olympic champions Andres Linger and Wolfgang Linger of Austria by 0.032 seconds. Germany's Toni Eggert and Sascha Benecken finished third in 1:27.829.
