A German two-man bobsled team crashed through the finish line during their second run on Sunday, but still finished with the top time of any team in the field.

With the bobsled competition split into two days worth of runs, the German team of Nico Walther and Christian Poser was looking to put down a solid run to put them in position to make the podium on Monday. They succeeded in that mission, but took too sharp an angle while exiting the final turn of the track, tipped over, and crashed their way through the finish line.
