Kaillie Humphries 2nd at midway point of women's bobsled
Americans lead over Calgary pilot, brakeman Heather Moyse
Calgary's Kaillie Humphries and brakeman Heather Moyse of Summerside, P.E.I. are in second place after two runs in women's bobsleigh on Tuesday in Sochi.
The defending Olympic champions posted a second run of 57.73 seconds for a two-run combined time of 1:55.12.
The United States-1 sled, piloted by Elana Meyers and brakeman Lauryn Williams, broke the start record in their second run of 57.63, and their combined time is 0.23 seconds ahead of the second-place Canadians.
But don't tell that to Humphries.
"We don't really look at times so I don't even know how big the gap is. And we don't want to know," she said. "Heather and I go in and focus on ourselves. I have no idea how anyone else did, how their runs were. We stick to us."
In third place is the United States-2 sled, piloted by Jamie Greubel and brakeman Aja Evans, with a combined time of 1:55.45.
Edmonton's Jenny Ciochetti, along with brakeman Chelsea Valois of Zenon Park, Sask., guided the Canada-2 sled to a 13th place with a combined time of 1:57.06.
"We weren't super thrilled with today," Ciochetti said. "We were hoping to move up into the top 10 or top six for tomorrow.
"We had two solid starts but there's a few things I can fix in the run."
The third of four runs is scheduled to begin at 11:15 a.m. ET on Wednesday.
