Cunningham Wraps Up in Two-Man Bobsled
Feb. 19, 2018


PYEONGCHANG, South Korea – Nick Cunningham and teammate Hakeem Abdul-Saboor wrapped up competition in the two-man bobsled at the XXII Winter Olympic Games Monday morning, clocking a 49.62 in their third run.

The 49.62 was their fastest time of the competition, but it left them in 21st place – one spot out of the top 20 and just short of qualifying ahead to the fourth and final run.

Cunningham and Abdul-Saboor finished with a combined time of 2:29.69, making them the second-fastest American sled in the competition.

Canada’s team of Justin Kripps and Alexander Kopacz and Germany's team of Francesco Friedrich and Thorsten Margis shared the gold medal as both teams had four-run combined times of 3:16.86.

Cunningham will now look ahead to the four-man bobsled competition, where he will team with Hakeem Abdul-Saboor, Christopher Kinney and Samuel Michener. Official competition for the four-man competition will begin Saturday, Feb. 24.
