Justin Kripps of Summerland completed his rookie season on the elite circuit with Edmonton’s Neville Wright on the brakes for the World Cup two-man bobsleigh competition in Sochi, Russia.

The Canadian duo finished 18th at 1:55.27.

Canada’s Lyndon Rush and Jesse Lumsden captured the overall World Cup two-man bobsleigh title.  This was despite finishing tied for fourth place on Saturday.

Rush, of Humboldt, Sask, and Lumsden, of Burlington, Ont., slid just shy of the medals after clocking a two-run of 1:54.41 in their first competitive test on the 17-corner track that will be used for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games.
