Lange wins again in WC bobsled, Holcomb takes 2nd

ALTENBERG, Germany - ALTENBERG, Germany (AP) — Two-time Olympic champion Andre Lange has won a four-man bobsled World Cup race in his final appearance on his home track in Germany, adding to his previous victory in the two-man event on the track.

Lange and his team — Rene Hoppe, Kevin Kuske and Martin Putze — finished 0.76 seconds ahead of the United States' Steven Holcomb on Sunday. The American had driven to victory in the three previous World Cup four-man races and leads the standings.

Holcomb was joined by his reigning world championship team of Justin Olsen, Steve Mesler and Curt Tomasevicz. Holcomb bounced back from a crash in Saturday's two-man race.

Russia's Evgeny Popov — with Denis Moiseychenkov, Andrey Yurkov and Alexey Kireev — was third for his first podium finish since February 2007.
