Chances are, a German will win a medal or three in the women’s singles luge. The question might just be “how many?,” as runs 1-2 kick off at 9:45 a.m. ET.
Natalie Geisenberger serves as the biggest favorite, although Tatjana Huefner has a great chance to win it all as well. Anke Wischnewski isn’t on that same level, but could be a medal threat nonetheless.
As dominant as Germany can be, the rest of the world has a shot, too. That’s especially true for Tatyana Ivanova, especially since she’ll have the home crowd on her side as a Russian.
The U.S. has a longshot candidate in Erin Hamlin (pictured), who broke a German streak of 99-women’s singles races won when she took gold at the 2009 Worlds.
