KOENIGSSEE, Germany (AP) — Olympic and world champion Kaillie Humphries of Canada bounced back to win a women's bobsled World Cup and hand German rival Cathleen Martini her first defeat on the Koenigssee course in three years Friday.

Martini beat Humphries last week in Altenberg, but the Canadian and brakewoman Chelsea Valois powered down in snowy conditions for a comfortable win, their sixth victory in seven races this season.

Sandra Kiriasis of Germany was third.

Humphries finished in 1 minute, 43.07 seconds for the two runs, beating Martini by 0.42 seconds.

The Koenigssee course is the oldest artificial ice track in the world.
