GB duo unhurt after crash

January 4, 2013 11:49 am

Great Britain bobsleigh pair Paula Walker and Gillian Cooke walked away unharmed from a high-speed crash on the second run of their World Cup race in Altenberg, Germany.

Walker and Cooke had been on course for their first World Cup podium place of the season, having finished the first run in third place and maintained that position through much of the second run.

But after taking the penultimate bend too high, Walker's sled overturned and continued to cross the line upside-down. The pair were able to clamber from their sled without assistance.
