Feb. 19, 2014 at 1:15 PM

SOCHI, Russia, Feb. 19 (UPI) -- Defending champions Kallie Humphries and Heather Moyse came from behind Wednesday to win the Olympic gold medal in the two-woman bobsled.

The United States won both the silver and bronze medals, but was denied the gold when Humphries drove to the best time of the fourth and final run. The Canadians began the fourth run .11 of a second behind and finished it .10 of a second in front.

The silver went to Elana Meyers and Lauryn Williams. The bronze was won by Jamie Greubel and Aja Evans.

Williams became the fifth athlete to win a medal at both a Summer and Winter Olympics, having collected a silver in the 100-meter dash in Athens a decade ago.
