Yun wins World Cup skeleton race, takes overall lead

ST. MORITZ, Switzerland (AP) — Olympic champion Yun Sungbin of South Korea got his first World Cup skeleton win of the season Friday, moving him back into the overall lead by the slimmest of margins.

Yun edged Alexander Tretiakov by two-tenths of a second, and now leads the Russian in the race to be the overall World Cup champion this season by a single point — 1,045-1,044.

Russia also got third in the men’s race, with Nikita Tregubov grabbing that bronze. The top American finisher was Austin Florian, who was 16th.

The women’s World Cup stop in St. Moritz was later Friday.
