ST. MORITZ, Switzerland -- Gustav Weder of Switzerland, the world two-man bobsledding champion, added another gold medal Sunday as he easily won the four-man competition.
With Bruno Gerber, Lorlenz Schindelholz and brakeman Curdin Morell as passengers, the 27-year-old Weder won two of the four heats and was second in the other two for an aggregate time of 4 minutes, 13.35 seconds.
East German pilot Harald Czudaj, who won silver in the two-man event a week ago on the same 1,585-meter long track, was second again, overtaking Austrian Ingo Appelt, who had held on to second after Saturday's first two heats.
Appelt held off a strong challenge by local pilot Nico Baracchi, who posted the fastest track time in the fourth heat with 1:03.84 but missed out on a medal by 0.13 seconds.
The best North American sled was piloted by Canada's Chris Lori, who finished 11th.
