Fedorov of Russia Edges Mazdzer of US to Win Luge World Cup
WINTERBERG, Germany (AP) — Russia's Stepan Fedorov edged the United States' Chris Mazdzer to win the last luge World Cup event of the season on Sunday.
Fedorov clocked 53.977 with his first run and 53.233 with his second to pip Mazdzer by 0.035 seconds. The American had the fastest second run of 53.221, but it was not enough to make up for his first of 54.024 in wet and windy conditions.
Italy's Dominik Fischnaller was third, 0.066 behind, ahead of Germany's Ralf Palik and Austria's Wolfgang Kindl.
Overall World Cup winner Felix Loch of Germany was sixth, 0.193 behind Fedorov.
World and European champion Loch, who won his fifth overall title at Altenberg, Germany, last weekend, finished with 940 points, ahead of Kindl on 795 and Mazdzer on 700.
