Brittany Reinbolt and Lauren Gibbs compete at the BMW IBSF World Cup on Jan. 27, 2017 in Koenigssee, Germany.

 

At the first event on home soil of the 2021-22 Monobob World Series, Team USA’s Brittany Reinbolt landed on the podium for the fourth time this season and Nicole Vogt scored her first of the campaign in Park City, Utah.

Reinbolt finished second behind World Series leader and 2018 Olympian Alysia Rissling of Canada, .66 seconds off her winning time of 1:43.60. Vogt finished in third, 1.09 seconds back of first. Reinbolt has won two other silver medals this season and one bronze. Vogt’s previous best finish this year was fourth at both of the season-opening events in Whistler, British Columbia.

Reinbolt, 37, now has five career podiums on the World Series circuit out of six events she’s entered going back to last season. The 2019 world championship bronze medalist in mixed team has also competed on the world cup circuit in two-woman bobsled. She’s still seeking her first career medal in world cup competition.

Vogt, 34, won on the same Park City track last year in the first Monobob World Series event ever held there. She went on to win three more World Series events that season, one more in Park City and two in Lake Placid, New York. At the mixed team event at the 2019 world championships where Reinbolt won her bronze, Vogt’s team finished just off the podium in fourth.

A second Park City event is next up on the World Series calendar on Nov. 24.
