Jamaica’s Olympian Carrie Russell won the Women’s Monobob World Series Bobsleigh event in Utah in the United States on Sunday, January 17, 2021.

The 30-year-old, Russell’s former sprinter finished behind Nicole Vogt of the United States whose overall time was 1 minute, 48.24. Marina Silva Tuono of Brazil was third with an overall time of 1 minute, 49.64 on Saturday.

Russell rebounded on Sunday producing a 54.13s run for a combined time of 1:49.08 to take the gold medal and relegating Vogt to second. Vogt had a combined time of 1:49.27.

The victory was due largely to better execution wherein Russell attained a top speed of 121.45 km/h, an improvement on the 120.47km/h achieved on Saturday. Vogt attained a top speed of 122km/h on Saturday but was much slower today at 120.78 km/h.

The bronze medal went to Marina Silva of Brazil whose combined time was 1:49.83. Silva finished second on Saturday.

Russell has been in Utah since New Year’s Day for the start of the season. She will compete in a two-woman event in the coming week before the competition moves to Lake Placid.
