PARK CITY, Utah -- The United States swept the podium in a womens bobsled World Cup on Saturday, with the team of Elana Meyers and Aja Evans winning a gold medal for the second straight day. Nike Air Jordan Sale Cheap . Jamie Greubel and Lolo Jones tied for second place with Jazmine Fenlator and Lauryn Williams. Jones and Williams are both Olympic veterans, and Williams was making her World Cup debut. It was the first time since February 2001 that American sleds took the top three spots in a womens bobsled race. Meyers and Evans finished two runs in 1 minute, 38.61 seconds. Greubel and Fenlator both drove to times of 1:39.24 to share the silver, a mere 0.01 seconds ahead of German star Sandra Kirasis. "It feels great to be on the podium," said Jones, who won her second World Cup medal as a push athlete. "With bobsled you never know when you are going to be on the podium and how long it will be before you are back on again. It makes you cherish the moments when you are doing well. " A schedule quirk calls for certain sliding disciplines to race twice at various World Cup stops this winter, and in Park City, womens bobsled was due for the double-up. So after winning gold Friday night, Meyers and Evans were back at it early Saturday. Meyers also assumed the series driving lead from Canadas Kaillie Humphries, who was seventh. The World Cup standings determine the starting order for the Sochi Olympics next year, and the earlier start position typically means a racer would be seeing better ice conditions. In the four-man race, Steven Holcomb continued his unbeaten season, teaming with Curt Tomasevicz, Steve Langton and Chris Fogt to pull away in the second run for a victory in 1:34.76. There was a three-way tie after the first four-man run between the Americans, a Russian sled and a German sled, but Holcomb was perfect the second time down the track to edge Germanys Maximilian Arndt by 0.35 seconds. Russias Alexander Kasjanov was third, 0.36 seconds back of Holcomb. "It was a great race and thats what were all here for," Holcomb said. "It was a good day."

A wide-eyed 18-year-old visiting North America for only the second time in his young life, Caboclo immediately noticed the "big tower" his new home is best known for.REGINA -- Calgary Stampeders kicker Rene Paredes was serenaded by Drakes "Started from the Bottom" as he headed to the stage to accept his award as the CFLs Most Outstanding Special Teams Player award. "Started from the bottom, now were here," went the refrain. For a player ignored in the draft, it was a fitting soundtrack. Paredes recalls that three kickers went in the first three rounds. "It really doesnt matter any more," he said, his trophy on a table next to him. Paredes received 47-of-50 votes by the Football Reporters of Canada and the leagues eight head coaches in winning the award Thursday night. Montreal linebacker Marc Beswick was the Eastern nominee. "Coming into this league undrafted, it was very hard and tough. All I could do was use it as motivation," Paredes said. Paredes may have got some more motivation in that his team was mistakenly etched on the trophy as the Saskatchewan Roughriders. It is slated to be fixed. The 28-year-old from Montreal was close to perfection in 2013. He was good on 54-of-57 field goals -- a success rate of 94.7 per cent -- and set a record for most consecutive field goals in the regular season with 39. The previous mark was 30 by Paul McCallum. Paredes led the league in field goals made (54), points (213) and converts (49). He also averaged 63.5 yards a kickoff. But the Stampeders 35-13 loss to Saskatchewan in the Western final still rankles. "Its still tough to swallow," he said in an earlier interview. Paredes is as close to automatic as it gets in field goal kicking. He has missed just six-of-100 attempts over the last two seasons and 129 of 145 in his three-year career. He refuses to rest on his laurels. "When theres a lot of success youve got to work harder and tthats what I did in the off-season. Cheap Jordans Online Free Shipping. . My goal was to get better. Ill take the same approach this off-season, get better, and well see what happens next year." Asked how he follows this season, he said: "I guess go 95 per cent. And the Grey Cup. I wish I had the Grey Cup." Paredes, however, limits his actual kicking in the off-season in his Montreal home to allow his body to recover from the rigours of the season. He rests until January when he starts working out. He starts kicking in April, starting with a four- or five-day session with kicking guru Don Sweet. After that, he may kick once a week or every two weeks. "The main thing is to keep my leg strength," he said. "You dont forget how to kick. Thats what youve got training camp for. Obviously you have to kick, I cant go to training camp without kicking but I dont try to tire my leg out in the off-season." Kicking takes a toll. Paredes reckons he kicks maybe 2,000 to 3,000 balls a season. "Your leg is tired. I felt it towards the end of the season," he said. "Not really injuries but it was bothering me." A former star kicker for Concordia, Paredes arrived in Calgary after a couple of stints in Winnipegs camp. He won the job after Rob Maver went down in the first game of the 2011 season and Stamps GM-coach John Hufnagel brought in Paredes and three others as possible replacements. Paredes was the last kicker standing, making a 50-yarder in his first field-goal attempt. Born in Venezuela to Peruvian parents, Paredes moved to Miami and then Montreal. A former soccer player, he switched to football after his high school football coach asked his soccer counterpart who had the strongest leg. The CFL awards are sponsored by Gibsons Finest.
