Kaillie Humphries leads after first monobob run
The brand-new women's monobob event got underway with the first of four heats, and Kaillie Humphries currently holds the lead.
Humphries, a three-time medalist for Canada who switched to the United States during the current Olympic cycle, didn't get off to as quick of a start as teammate Elana Meyers Taylor did, but Humphries took a smoother line through the course and posted a time of 1:04.44. German Laura Nolte, at 0.30 seconds back, was the closest to Humphries' time, while Canadian Christine de Bruin and Meyers Taylor are tied for third place 0.68 seconds behind Humphries.
This marks the Olympic debut of women's monobob. The second set of runs are coming up at 10 p.m. ET, then the competition will wrap up tomorrow with the final two runs. Medals will be awarded based on riders' cumulative times from all four heats
