The world luge championships highlight this week’s winter sports events on NBC Sports, Olympic Channel and Peacock Premium.

The host Germans are expected to again dominate luge worlds, which were relocated from Whistler, B.C., to Königssee due to coronavirus pandemic-related travel issues.

Two-time Olympic champions Felix Loch and Natalie Geisenberger lead the individual World Cup standings in comeback seasons.

Loch, after dropping from first to fifth in the fourth and final run at the 2018 Olympics, won just one World Cup event in the 2018-19 and 2019-20 seasons (plus the 2019 World title). But this season, Loch has won nine of 11 races, the only defeats coming in the non-Olympic sprint event.

Geisenberger, after taking the 2019-20 season off due to pregnancy, finished first or second in every World Cup, often battling countrywoman Julia Taubitz.

Five different doubles teams among four different nations have won World Cups this season.

The U.S. team joined the World Cup circuit late this season due to the pandemic, flying to Europe for January races. Its best hopes are 2018 Olympic silver medalist Chris Mazdzer (best finish this season: 13th), 2019 World bronze medalist Emily Sweeney and Summer Britcher, the lone American to make a World Cup podium this season (third on Sunday).

In other sports this week, Mikaela Shiffrin competes in a giant slalom in Kronplatz, Italy, on Tuesday, likely her last race before February’s world Alpine skiing championships.
